Lesson Seven Seventh(7th) Lesson


Possessive Form
The possessive form is used with nouns referring to people, groups of people, countries, and
animals. It shows a relationship of belonging between one thing and another. To form the
possessive, add apostrophe + s to the noun. If the noun is plural, or already ends in s, just add an
apostrophe after the s.
EXAMPLES:
1) The car of John = John's car
2) The room of the girls = the girls' room
3) The boat of the sailors = the sailors' boat

Possessive Pronouns , Possessive Adjectives and Object Pronouns

Possessive Adjectives:
Possessive Adjective + Noun

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
Possessive Pronouns:
Noun + Possessive Pronoun
Examples:

The brown cat is its.
The car is ours.
Possessive adjectives go before the noun and possessive pronouns go after the noun. Here are
some examples:
1) This is my car. The car is mine.
2) Is that your pen? Is that pen yours?
Object Pronouns:
An object pronoun is a type of personal pronoun that is normally used as a grammatical object,
either as the direct or indirect object of a verb, or as the object of a preposition. The seven basic
pronouns take on different forms when used as object pronouns rather than as subject pronouns:

 I becomes Me
 You becomes You (this rule applies for singular and plural use)
 He becomes Him
 She becomes Her
 It becomes It
 We becomes Us
 They becomes Them
Here are some examples:
1) We gave them the money.
2) He knows me well.
3) She sees them on the bus.
4) He teaches us Math.
5) What is the matter with her today?
6) I explain the lesson to you every day.
7) We will divide the money between us.
8) She sent me a lot of presents.
9) He always helps me with my homework.
10) You need to talk with them.
