what is the difference between possessive adjectives and possessive pronouns ?
In traditional British grammar, my, your, his, her, its, our and their were possessive adjectives, and were used only before nouns: My book is on the table.
Mine, yours, his, hers, its, ours and theirs were possessive pronouns, and stood alone - they were not used before nouns: A: Where are the books? ...B: Mine is on the table.
