Possessive Pronouns

A possessive pronoun refers to a thing or person and its owner: my, your, mine, yours... Sometimes possessive pronouns are called possessive adjectives.
1)The possessive pronoun (my, your, his, her, its, our, their) always stands before a noun and modifies it.

E.g.
My aunt is a professor.
Is this your house?

2)The possessive pronoun (mine, yours, his, hers, its, ours, theirs) replaces a possessive pronoun and a noun, when the noun is understood.

E.g.
The book on the desk is mine, yours is in your schoolbag.
