What are Cases of Pronouns

What are Cases of Pronouns

 Pronouns are words that take places of nouns to avoid repetition. As we know that a noun can be used as a subject, or as an object. Similarly, when we use pronoun instead of a noun, at first we see function of the noun. If the noun functions as a subject, we also use the subjective form of the pronoun. If the noun functions as an object, we use objective form of the pronoun. If the noun shows possession, then possessive form of the pronoun is used.


Case is the form a pronoun takes depending on its function in a sentence. There are three cases of pronouns in English. They are subjective, objective, and possessive.
