Lesson 26 - Parts of Speech - Pronouns

Relative pronouns join dependent clauses to independent clauses. They are who, whose, whom, which, and that. For example, He found his money that he had lost. That joins the two clauses together into one sentence. Clauses will be taught in detail later.

Instructions: Find the relative pronouns in the sentences, and see how many other pronouns you can find as a bonus.

1. I want the house, which is brick.

2. Jack ordered the meal that we picked up.

3. Freddie is the girl who won the contest.

4. Jon is a man on whom I can rely.

5. The student whose answer was wrong turned bright red.
