Possessive Pronouns

A possessive pronoun tells who or what owns (possesses) something. A possessive pronoun
takes the place of possessive nouns (nouns that show ownership).
Examples of possessive pronouns that are used before a noun:
our boat her brother
my necklace
your house
their basket
Examples of possessive pronouns that stand alone:
Is this hat yours?
Yes, the cards are mine.

Rewrite each sentence using a possessive pronoun from
the word box for the underlined word.
