Pronoun Worksheet for Class 2 | Pronoun | Usage | Exercises |
English Grammar is really important when it comes to competitive exams. There is hardly any exam that doesn’t test your grammatical skills. Though, in English, there are many important grammatical topics such as; Tenses, Modals, Determiners, Subject Verb Concord/Agreement, Reported Speech, Preposition, Adjectives, Conditionals etc. but out of these, the most important topic is Pronouns. It is very important for all of us to take care of these pronouns if we want to avoid common errors in English. 

What is a Pronoun?

A pronoun is a word that stands in for a noun. This means that it replaces the name of a person, place, thing, or idea. For example, ‘Girl’ is a noun and ‘She’ is a pronoun that stands in for the noun ‘Girl.’ Another example would be ‘Lion’ as the noun and ‘It’ as the pronoun standing in for the lion. If you do not want to say the name of a person or thing, you can use a pronoun. For example, if you wanted to say “The girl” then instead of saying “The girl,” you could say “She.”
