    Determiners v pronouns

    I am doing an exercise to identify the determiners in a sentence. Is a word a determiner if there is no noun following, so the noun is implied?

    Eg Do you have any money on you? Yes, I have some.
    (is 'some' a determiner?)

    Eg This book is mine, but that is his.
    (are 'that' and 'his' determiners?)

    thanks

    Re: Determiners v pronouns

    Many dictionaries would classify those as pronouns:
