Notes On Revisiting Pronouns - CBSE Class 7 English Grammar
Pronouns replace nouns. If we didn't have pronouns, we'd have to keep repeating our nouns and that would make our sentences very cumbersome and repetitive. Pronouns are usually short words.  When most people think of pronouns, words like he, she, and they spring to mind, but there are several different types of pronouns, including : · Personal pronouns              (e.g., he, they) · Demonstrative pronouns    (e.g., this, these) · Interrogative pronouns       (e.g., which, who) · Indefinite pronouns            (e.g., none, several) ·  Reciprocal pronouns          (e.g., each other, one another) · Relative pronouns               (e.g., which, where) · Reflexive pronouns             (e.g., itself, himself) · Intensive pronouns              (e.g., itself, himself)
