Possessive Adjectives and Possessive Pronouns Possessive Adjectives 

Têm a função de modificar um substantivo dando sentido de posse, devendo, assim, sempre precedê-lo. (Lembre-se da função do adjetivo, que sempre acompanha um substantivo).  Exemplos: This is my car. / We did our homework yesterday.

Possessive Pronouns 

Os Possessive Pronouns, por sua vez, substituem o adjetivo possessivo + substantivo. Em geral, os dois tipos de possessivos concordam com o possuidor expresso na oração, e não com a coisa possuída. Exemplos:  We have our problems. They have theirs too.  She is wearing her new dress.  The cat is drinking its milk.  Their car is here. Where is ours?
