Pronoun -सर्वनाम

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

सर्वनाम – संज्ञा के स्थान पर प्रयोग होने वाला शब्द सर्वनाम है । सर्वनाम का मतलब 'संज्ञा के लिए' ।

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.

पहले वाक्य में अव्यन व्यक्ति का नाम है । अव्यन संज्ञा है । उदाहरण में जब दूसरे वाक्य में अव्यन के बारे में कहा गया है, तब अव्यन के लिए 'वह' शब्द का प्रयोग हुआ है । 'वह' सर्वनाम है ।

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 .

सर्वनाम संज्ञा के अनुरूप ही होना चाहिए । संज्ञा अगर सिंगुलर है तो सर्वनाम सिंगुलर होना चाहिए, संज्ञा अगर प्लुरल है तो सर्वनाम प्लुरल होना चाहिए और संज्ञा अगर स्त्रीलिंग है तो सर्वनाम भी स्त्रीलिंग होना चाहिए ।

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