    Re: adjective and pronoun

    Thanks for correcting my sentence.
    in the sentence i posted i.e. ''These students are good ",
    i feel 'these and good' are adjective and it does not contain a pronoun.

    Yes, you are correct. "These" is a demonstrative adjective here.
    If the sentence had been "Whose books are these?", "these" would be a pronoun".
    By the way, "u" is not an English word, and you need to use a capital "I".
