P ronouns by the Case
 
Lesson 4-15
Prompt:As we have learned, pronouns take the place of nouns and may be used according to their case. Pronouns used as subjects of verbs or predicate nouns are in the "subjective case." Pronouns used as objects of prepositions, direct objects, or indirect objects are in the "objective case." Pronouns used to show possession are in the "possessive case."
