Subject Pronouns - I, you, he, she, it, we, you, they- function as the subject of a sentence:

I live in New York.
Do you like playing tennis?
He doesn't want to come this evening

Object Pronouns - me, you, him, her, it, us, you, them- serve as the object of a verb.

Give me the book.
He told you to come tonight.
She asked him to help.

Possessive Pronouns - mine, yours, his, hers, its, ours, yours, theirs- show that something belongs to someone. Note that the possessive pronouns are similar to possessive adjectives (my, his, her). The difference is that the object follows the possessive adjective but does not follow the possessive pronoun. For example - Possessive Pronoun: That book is mine. - Possessive Adjective: That is my book.

That house is mine.
This is hers.
those seats are yours

Demonstrative Pronouns - this, that, these, those refer to things. 'this' and 'these' refer to something that is near. 'that' and 'those' refer to things that are farther away.

This is my house.
That is our car .
These are my colleagues .
Those are beautiful flowers.
