    Re: Relative pronoun

    There are many females who are teachers here. The use of "sir" is wrong and unnecessary.

    Did you look up "whose" in a dictionary? It is a pronoun that shows possession.

    Re: Relative pronoun

    Hello, waheed leghari.

    I'd like to show you how two separate sentences are joined together with a relative pronoun 'whose'.

    I saw a girl. Her beauty took my breath away.
    I saw a girl whose beauty took my breath away.

    I saw a boy. His name is John.
    I saw a boy whose name is John.

    He's written a book. I've forgotten its name.
    He's written a book whose name I've forgotten.

    I hope you'll understand what I mean.
