    Exclamation Identifying Pronouns

    Okay so, I have already picked out and Identified what I think is correct except for on two, that I'm not sure of. Okay so here it goes.
    P.S. possessive pronoun is not an option for identity.

    1)That was the hottest day of the year, and the family had to help Richard move themselves.

    My list of pronouns & identities: that (demonstrative), Themselves(Intensive)

    2)Someone in the back of the room asked, "What is the largest tree in the world?"
    My list of pronouns and identities: Someone(Indefinite), what(Interrogative)

    3)Leaving the meeting late, Elizabeth found herself all alone on the dark street and headed quickly for home.
    My list of pronouns & identities: herself(reflective), all(indefinite)

    4)Those are the only shoes Joan has to wear with the blue dress. Anybody can see that!
    My list of pronouns & identities: those(demonstrative, anybody(indefinite)

    5)Whatever is Will doing up in the tree, and who told the boy that it was all right to be there?
    My list of pronouns & identities: whatever(interrogative), who(interrogative), that(relative)

    6)Which of the white houses on this block is Preston's? Is that the one?
    My list of pronouns & identities: which(interrogative), this(demonstrative), that(demonstrative)

    7)Somebody with no sense walked right across the garden, stepped on Benjamin's newly planted petunias, and crushed some.
    My list of pronouns & identities: somebody(indefinite), some(indefinite)

    8)Sylvia has enough presents; the birthday girl should be generous and not keep all those herself.
    My list of pronouns & identities: enough(indefinite), those(demonstrative),herself(intensive)

    And these are the two I really am not sure on:

    9) No, Marsha can't have the bananas or the apples; those are Ted's.


    10) No one has ever hit more than seventy home runs in a single major league season, but several have been in the ballpark.


    This worksheet is very important to me. If I have any of 1-8 100% correct just say they're correct. If I missed something or something isn't right please let me know. I would like someone to help me with 9 & 10? I couldn't find anything. Thank you.

    Re: Identifying Pronouns

    Is this homework?

    We don't help students to cheat, laceymariaaa. Your teacher wants to know what you can do – not what we can do.
