Pronoun -Sarvnaam

Pronouns - Pronouns are words that are used in place of nouns. Pronoun means ‘for a noun’.

Sarvanaam – Sangyaa ke sthaan par prayog hone waalaa shabd sarvanaam hai. Sarvanaam kaa matlab ‘sangyaa ke liye’.

Example: Avyan is also a member of the Jury.
So, he is also responsible for the Judgement.

In the first sentence the word ‘Avyan’ is the name of a person. So Avyan is a noun. When we wrote about the same person in the sentence, we used the word ‘He’ in place of Avyan. ‘He’ is a pronoun.

Pahale vaakya meiN Avyan vyakti kaa naam hai. Avyan Sangyaa hai. UdahaaraN meiN jab doosare vaakya meiN Avyan ke baare meiN kahaa gayaa hai, tab Avyan ke liye ‘Vah’ shabd kaa prayog huaa hai. ‘Vah’ sarvanaam hai.

Example: Jaipur is a pink city. It has many tourist places.
In these sentences, Jaipur is a noun. It is a pronoun.

Rules for Pronouns

A pronoun must agree with the noun it represents. If the noun is singular, the pronoun must be singular; if the noun is plural, the pronoun must be plural and if the noun is feminine, the pronoun must be feminine .

Sarvaneem Sangyaa ke anurup hee hona chaahiye. Sangyaa agar singular hai to sarvanaam singular honaa chaahiye, sangyaa agar plural hai to sarvanaam plural honaa chaahiye aur sangyaa agar istriling hai to sarvanaam bhee istriling honaa chaahiye.

A dog was barking. It was black.
Few dogs were not barking at night. They were also black.
