Antecedent - The noun that the pronoun
refers to is the antecedent.
Let's try a sample.

It refers to toy.

Subject and Object Pronouns A pronoun that replaces a subject is a subject pronoun. Also, a pronoun that replaces a direct object is an object pronoun, they receive the action of a verb. Object Pronouns are also used after words such as to, in, for, and at. Here's a chart of Subject and Object pronouns and if they are plural or singular.

Possessive Pronouns Possessive nouns show ownership, pronouns are able to replace possessive nouns. Possessive Pronoun: A pronoun that shows ownership. Here's a chart of possessive pronouns. Used Before Nouns Used Alone My
His, Her, Its Our
His, Hers, Its Ours
Theirs Remember not to confuse them with contractions such as it's, they're, and you're. Let's try a few. Robert's friend is over there.
Robert's could be changed to His. You can use Jenna's computer.
Jenna's can be changed to Her. I use the Harrises' calculator for school work.
The Harrises' can be changed to Their. Is this candle Steve's?
Steve's can be changed to yours. The softball is Jessica's
Jessica's can be changed to Hers. Now you try some! My family's cat ran away three days ago. Mrs. Cutrer's desk is on that side of the room. The dog's bone was dug in the ground. The friends' went to the party last Tuesday. The grammar book is Steve's. Change the noun to a possessive pronoun Choose the correct word. (My, Mine) Kindle Fire is a high definition. (Our, Ours) medieval shields are due Friday. (Your, You're) not doing your discussion questions on The Westing Game? This pencil is (their, theirs). That backpack is (my, mine)! Pronouns After Linking Verbs A linking verb is able to join the subject of a sentence with a predicate noun. Remember to always use subject pronouns after liking verbs! Here are a few examples: The members of the team are he and she. He and she are the subject pronouns after the linking verb are. To check if the pronoun is right. Just flip it! He and she are the members of the team. The people that made the masks in Art were they. They is the subject pronoun after the linking verb were. They were the people that made the masks. The person who sang "Man in the Mirror" was he. He is the subject pronoun after the linking verb was. He was the person that sang "Man in the Mirror." The person who wrote this book appears to be he. He is the subject pronoun after the linking verb appears. He appears to be the person who wrote the book. The player who plays center field has been she. She is the subject pronoun after the linking verb been. She has been the player who plays center field. Find the linking verb and the subject pronoun! Tip: Remember to flip it! The creators of the game are they, The air mass that is warm and dry seems to be the Maritime Continental. The friend of the student is I. The best basketball player looks like she. The maker of the Prezi project was I. The people in Mr. Groelle's home room are we. The boy on the computer has been he. The girl texting is she. The people who have to canter are we. It was they who went to the concert. Pronouns in Compounds Two or more simple subjects are joined by and or or. Correct? You use subject pronouns in compound subjects. Remember to mention yourself last. To check if the compound is correct, drop one part of the compound. He and she ran to school. She ran to school makes sense. You also should know that object pronouns are used in different ways. It receives the action of the verb and is used after object of prepositions. Any pronoun in a compound object must be an object pronoun You and I are learning about The Kings in Religion. The friends played with him and me. You are learning about the Kings in Religion makes sense. The friends played with him makes sense. She and he went with him and her, She went with her makes sense, She and he ran to Health class to learn about nutrition. He ran to Health class to learn about nutrition makes sense, The present was meant for her and me. For is a preposition, so object pronouns should go after it.
The present was meant for her makes sense. Now try it yourself! The students ran to him and her. He and she learned about Alicia Keys in Music class. He and I invited her and him to the game. He and she did the puppet show in Drama. I threw a ball at him and her, The woman made a present for her and us. He and we went to the concert with her and them. He and she learned about what happened in crime and punishment in Medieval Times. Annie and I helped him and her at the festival. I and he learned about the clouds in Science class. Using Who, Whom, and Whose Who, Whom, and Whose are forms of the pronoun who. You use who as a subject pronoun, whom as an object pronoun which can go after pronouns of a preposition, and whose is the possessive form of who. You use whose with questions of ownership. Remember not to confuse Whose with Who's. Who's is a contraction for Who is. To whom did you give that to? Whose English book is that? They need it for the project. Who stole the pencil from Stevie? Who's this kettle corn for? Whom did you decide to study for the old Religion project on saints? Try it yourself!
Use Who, Whom, Whose, or Who's (Who, Whom) took the Health book to do the sheet? (Whose, Who's) that boy over there? (Whom, Whose) Gatorade bottle is this? (Whom, Who) is that little girl over there? (Who, Who's) learned about World War II in Reading class? (Whom, Whose) pencil pouch is the red and blue one? For (Who, Whom) did you give the baseball mitt to?

Although, indefinite pronouns do not have definite antecedents.
They are not referred to a specific person, place, or thing. Here is a list of Singular and Plural indefinite pronouns. Singular Plural anybody everything
everyone something all
some Several Pronouns that are singular always take a singular verb. Others are plural and always take a plural verb. Take a look at these examples Someone is outside playing with the boy.
