    There are several kinds of pronoun. The first one is the personal pronouns. These are I, me, mine, we, us, yours, you, he, him, his, she, her, hers, it, its, they, them, theirs

    The next type of pronoun is the indefinite pronoun. It means that we don't know the particular person or gender that we are refering to. Please refer to the table of summary of indefinite pronoun.

    SINGULAR
    another, little, each, nothing,
    anybody, much, either,
    anyone, nobody, somebody
    everybody, someone
    everyone, something

    PLURAL
    both, few, many, others
    several, a number

    SINGULAR/PLURAL
    all, more, most, none
    some, one half, one third

     When an indefinite pronoun replaces a plural count noun, the accompanying verb should likewise be in plural form.
     When an indefinite pronoun replaces a mass noun, the accompanying verb should be in singular form.

    Another type is the demostrative. The examples are: this, that, those, these.

    Next type is the reflexive pronoun. Examples are: myself, yourself, himself, herself, itself, oneslf, ourselves, yourselves and themselves.

    The last is the interrogative pronouns which are: what, which, who, whom, whose.

    I hope it would help you.
