Overview of Pronouns
What is a Pronoun?
Pronoun - a word used instead of a Noun.
But why should we use them?
By avoiding the repetition of a noun, we make a sentence short and beautiful.
Have a look at the following sentences:
Sentence without Pronoun: Alka is absent, because Alka is ill.
It sounds odd.
To improve it, we can avoid the repetition of the noun Alka.
Sentence with Pronoun: Alka is absent, because she is ill.
