You must know what noun a pronoun is replacing to know what pronoun to use.
Animals, Places, Things, Ideas
Always use a singular pronoun to replace a singular noun and a plural pronoun to replace a plural noun!
The star is bright.
All the stars in the sky are bright.
A contraction is formed when two words are combined into one word. The apostrophe shows where one or more letters have been left out and the two words joined.
They have = They've
She is = She's
It is = It's
He will = He'll
They are = They're
Possessive pronouns NEVER use apostrophes!
If you're ever unsure, try substituting the two words the contraction stands for in the sentence to see if they make sense!
