Possessives: Pronoun or Adjective

The Possessives are words to show ownership.

The Possessive Adjective tells us who owns something.
 They must go somewhere before a noun.

The Possessive Pronoun replaces a
 possessive adjective and a noun.

         ADJECTIVES                                             PRONOUNS

My first trip to the beach.                             This is mine !
You've left me your cute car.                        The car is yours.
He gave me his umbrella.                              The umbrella is his.
She gave me her float.                                  The float is hers.
Our friends lent me their goggles.                   They are really ours.
I like your nice gifts.                                     My gratitude is yours.
They also gave me their basket.                      The basket is theirs.
