"Possessive pronouns are words used to indicate that something belongs to someone or has a direct relationship with someone else."
Possessive pronouns are used to refer to a specific person / people or thing / things belonging to a person / people and sometimes belonging to an animal / animals or thing / things. Possessive pronouns often used in speech and writing to avoid repetition.
• I had dinner with Riya and Riya’s brother, Krunal.
To avoid repeating the name Riya in the sentence, we use the possessive pronoun 'her' to make the sentence neater and less repetitive:
• I had dinner with Riya and her brother, Krunal.
A very common error is putting an apostrophe in the possessive pronoun its. It is easy to confuse its with the contraction of it is, it’s, which does have an apostrophe. Remember, though, possessive pronouns never use apostrophes.
We add ‘’S’ to the noun to make Possessives/Possessive Noun.
