Complete the Sentence With Subject Pronoun

A noun is a person, place, or a thing. A pronoun is a word that takes the place of a noun. A subject pronoun takes the place of the subject in a sentence. I, you, we, he, she, it and they are all subject pronouns.

Subject pronouns usually appear at the beginning of a sentence and tell what or whom the sentence is mostly about.

Read the following example sentences. Here, each subject pronoun is underlined.

1. Joseph ate too much at dinner and had a stomach ache.
He ate too much at dinner and had a stomach ache.

('He' takes the place of "Joseph")
2. Samantha has more than 20 pairs of earrings.
She has more than 20 pairs of earrings.

('She' takes the place of "Samantha")
3. The cat ran all over the chairs. 
It ran all over the chairs.

('It' takes the place of "the cat")
4. Natalie and I sang a song at our school concert.
We sang a song at our school concert.

('We' takes the place of "Natalie and I")
5. Tom, Daniel and Lucas danced wildly to the music at the concert.
They danced wildly to the music at the concert.

('They' takes the place of "Tom, Daniel and Lucas")

First and Second Person Subject Pronouns
First and second person subject pronouns ('I' and 'You') are not often used as replacement words since they specifically describe or address a point of view.

For example: -
1. I walked the dogs after dinner.
  • 'I' cannot be replaced since it is a first person subject pronoun and refers specifically to the person speaking.
2. You did a fantastic job on your end of term test.
  • 'You' cannot be replaced since it is a second person subject pronoun and refers specifically to the person being spoken to.
