Study the information about demonstrative pronouns.
A pronoun is a word that is used in place of a noun or nouns. Pronouns have the same functions as nouns. They can be subjects or objects.

Also when pronouns, like nouns, are subjects, they must agree with their verbs. This chart shows the pronoun, subject, verb agreement.
