Possessive pronouns are used to show ownership.  Possessive pronouns have special forms.
            Singular
possessive: 
My, mine, your, yours, his,
her, hers, its.
            Plural
Possessive: 
   our, ours, your, yours, their, theirs.


Possessive pronouns never use apostrophes.  Do not confuse  – its – (possessive pronoun) with – it’s -, a
contraction meaning ‘it is’.

Example:  The dog cleaned its paw (possessive pronoun)
                   It is 5 pm now (contraction)



EXERCISE:
Identify possessive pronouns.
1.      This
pen is mine, not yours.
2.      My
cell number has been changed.
3.      His
car is the one on the right.
4.      How
far away is his company from yours?
5.      The
soldiers set up their tent in the open ground.
