Match The Sentences With Correct Pronouns

An object pronoun takes the place of the object of a sentence. Me, us, you, him, her, it and them are all object pronouns.

Object pronouns usually appear near the middle or the end of the sentence (after the verb) and tell what or who is receiving the action in the sentence.

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

1. I would like to talk to Barry.
I would like to talk to him.

('Him' takes the place of "Barry")
2. The gold medal belongs to Ashley.
The gold medal belongs to her.

('Her' takes the place of "Ashley")
3. The kitten chased the string.
 The kitten chased it.

('It' takes the place of "the string")
4. We gave the officers our tickets.
We gave them our tickets.

('Them' takes the place of "the officers")
5. Our coach said she would open the gym just for Melissa and me.
Our coach said she would open the gym just for us.

('Us' takes the place of "Melissa and me")

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

For example: -
1. Mother tempted me with cookie dough.
  • 'Me' cannot be replaced since it is a first person object pronoun and refers specifically to the person speaking.
2. You can meet me after school.
  • 'You' cannot be replaced since it is a second person object pronoun and refers specifically to the person being spoken to.
