Pronouns (4); Possessive Pronoun

Bacalah dengan nama Tuhanmu,_____
"Visi adalah seni melihat hal-hal yang tidak kelihatan" (Jonathan Swift)

Dear pembelajar,
Subject Pronoun, Complement Pronoun, dan Possessive Adjective, saya yakin sudah anda pahami. Nah, sekarang kita belajar tentang Possessive Pronoun.
Sebelumnya, kita telah mendapat gambaran bahwa Possessive Adjective agak berbeda dengan Possessive Pronoun. Dalam Possessive Adjective, noun (bendanya) disebutkan, sedang pada Possessive Pronoun, noun (bendanya), tidak disebutkan kembali.

Catatan :
1. Possessive Pronoun untuk I adalah MINE,
2. Possessive Pronoun untuk You adalah YOURS
3. Possessive Pronoun untuk We adalah OURS
4. Possessive Pronoun untuk They adalah THEIRS
5. Possessive Pronoun untuk He adalah HIS
6. Possessive Pronoun untuk She adalah HERS
7. Possessive Pronoun untuk It adalah Its
Contoh :
  1. Your coat (possessive adjective) may be warm but I think mine (possessive pronoun) is more elegant.
  2. Because I have no gloves, my niece offered me hers.(possessive pronoun)
  3. I forgot to bring my camera (possessive adjective). Do you bring yours?(possessive pronoun)
  4. When I lost my map (possessive adjective), your son lent me his. (possessive pronoun)
  5. They discarded their old telephone directories (possessive adjective), but we kept ours. (possessive pronoun)
  6. Your pencil (possessive adjective) is not sharp enough to fill this form, use mine (possessive pronoun).
  7. I never cut my hair (possessive adjective) , but my sister cuts hers (possessive pronoun) once a month.
  8. If she borrows your coat (possessive adjective) then you should be able to borrow hers (possessive pronoun) also.
  9. When my roommate paid her half of rent (possessive adjective), I paid mine (possessive pronoun).
  10. Mary and Joe live in their apartment (possessive adjective) while we live in ours (possessive pronoun)
