Possesive adjectives are used to show ownership or possession.

The possessive adjectives are:

Subject pronoun                Possessive adjective

I                                        my

you                                   your

he                                      his

she                                    her

it                                       its

we                                   our

they                                  their

For example:

That's my folder.

* " My" is an adjective which shows that I am the owner of the folder.


A possessive adjective is similar or identical to a possessive pronoun; however, it is used as an adjective and modifies a noun or a noun phrase.

For example:

I can't complete my assignment because I don't have the textbook.

* In this sentence, the possessive adjective "my" modifies the noun "assignment".

What is your phone number?

* Here the possessive adjective "your" is used to modify the noun phrase "phone number"

The cat chased its ball down the stairs and into the backyard.

* In this sentence, the possessive adjective "its" modifies "ball".
