Personal pronouns can be distinguished based on their function and the person they refer to. Here are the different types of personal pronouns:

  1. Subject pronouns: These pronouns are used as the subject of a sentence. They include “I, you, he, she, it, we, they.” For example, “I am going to the store.”

  2. Object pronouns: These pronouns are used as the object of a verb or preposition. They include “me, you, him, her, it, us, them.” For example, “She gave it to me.”

  3. Possessive pronouns: These pronouns show ownership or possession. They include “mine, yours, his, hers, its, ours, theirs.” For example, “The book is mine.”

  4. Reflexive pronouns: These pronouns are used when the subject and object of a sentence are the same. They include “myself, yourself, himself, herself, itself, ourselves, yourselves, themselves.” For example, “I hurt myself.”

  5. Intensive pronouns: These pronouns are used to emphasize a noun or pronoun in a sentence. They are the same as reflexive pronouns but are used differently. For example, “I myself will take care of it.”

By understanding the function and usage of these pronouns, you can easily distinguish between them in a sentence.
