Possessive Adjectives

Possessive adjectives show who (or what) owns something. The common possessive adjectives are my, your, his, her, its, our, their, and whose.

Possessive adjectives come before the noun they are modifying. For example, "I am riding my bike," or, "The cat is cleaning its tail."

Possessive adjectives are different from possessive pronouns, which replace the noun in a sentence. Like all adjectives in English, possessive adjectives go directly before the noun. For example, "Let's go to your house," or, "Ruby is driving our car today."

Be careful! There is no apostrophe (') in the possessive adjective its. We only use an apostrophe when writing the contraction of "it is" or "it has," as in, "It's time for lunch."
