A relative pronoun is a part of speech that shows the pronoun’s relation to a noun used in a clause of a sentence and tends to replace a noun.
A relative pronoun is a pronoun that includes an adjective clause, also called a relative clause.
A relative clause always begins with a relative pronoun to show the noun’s relativity to the person in a clause or a sentence. A relative pronoun can function as a possessive pronoun as it possesses the noun of a sentence, object, or subject, respectively. This pronoun is used as a singular or plural without specifying any difference between male and female. In a clause of a sentence, a relative pronoun plays the role of a noun.
