What Is An Adjective?
The Definition Is - "A Word Which (Defines a Noun) OR ( Modify / Change A Noun ) Is Called Adjective"
Lets Start The Explanation But First We Should Know
What Is A Noun?
- The Defintion Of The Noun Is - > "Noun Is The Name Of Place , Person Or Anything " - It Means The Name OF Anything Is Noun - For Example:
Your Name , Your Father Name , Your City Name , Your Country Name , Your School Name etc.
So as you can see they all have their own names that's why they are noun. i hope now if anyone asks you
what is a noun so you can tell ("Noun Is The Name Of Anything"). Till now we have understood
what is the noun. its time to see how does an "Adjective (Defines A Noun ,Change/Modify A Noun)"
1) Defines A Noun : For Ex:
"A Nice Book"
Nice ← Adjectives
Book ← Noun
As you can see in this example sentence - "A Nice Book" - the word " Nice "
is an Adjectives And the word " Book "
is a Noun.
so you may be asking yourself why the word nice is adj and what it is doing here? well the answer of this question is (The Word Nice) Is prasing or telling good thing about the noun (Which Is Book) if you still confuse don't worry take one more example - "A beautiful Girl"
In this sentence beautiful is telling good about the a girl so that's why this word is (adj)
ok!! so this is how adj defines a noun
2) Modify / Change Noun
intelligent ← Adjectives
person ← Noun
In this example sentence intelligent
is an Adjective (intelligent -> adjective) And Person
is a (Noun)
and the word intelligent is modifying a noun because it is totally changing the meaning or sense why because
if we say "A stupid person" so the word stupid is actually changing the whole meaning / Sense in your mind means whenever we need help so will first think 2 or 3 times before taking help from this person
but if i say "An intelligent person" this also changes the meaning / sense in our mind about this person
so this change is called modify A noun
Types Of Adjectives:
The Formal / Proper Definition Is "It Describes The Quality of Noun"
Or In Easy Words We can say that it praises the Noun / Or Tell the good things about the Noun
For Example :
A Beautiful Place
← 'Adjectives' Place
So In This Ex Beautiful
Is Adjectives Of Quality
Because The Word Beautiful
is telling the Quality of A Noun (Means telling good thing about the place)
so whenever we need to show the Quality of Noun we will use it . if you are still confuse don't worry iam going to give you one more ex -
" Ali is handsome "
Ali-> Noun , handsome->Adj (because the word "handsome" is telling us that ali is nice looking person / And showing the quality of Ali)
2) Adjectives Of Quantity
- The Formal Definition Is - " It describes the quantity of noun "
- In Easy Words: We can say that - "It tells us the amount / number or quantity of noun"
- For Example: I have many Students
← Adjectives of Quantity Students
As You Can see in this Example Many
Is the Adjectives of Quantity And Students
And if we say I have Students this is also right but in order to show the quantity or number we have used the word "Many".
For your better understading iam giving you one more ex Which is
"She has much water"
In this sentence (much: is showing the quantity)
and the (water: is noun) so this is how we use it. now you may be thinking what are the words to show the quantity or number well
don't worry about it because below i have given the words
List Of Words:

3) Demonstrative Adjectives
- " We use it to show the Noun / Pronoun location / Position "

- We use it for asking question and we also put (?) question mark at the end of our every sentence
- Example No 2: How Are you? - in this sentence we are asking someone's health or condition
- So if we put interrogative and adjectives together then the defintion or usage will become like "Used for asking Questions and for describing a noun" now in order to understand we need to see the example sentence
- Which Book do you like?
- In this Example Which is an Interrogative adjectives because "Which" is helping us in asking a question and "Which" is also describing a Noun - Means in this example we have book as a noun because if we just say "which do you like?" so then it will not make any sense And one more thing we put a question mark "?" at the end of every sentence to telling others this a question

so in order to show my owership i will say "Hey Mr. This is my box" and then i will get my box
So in this example My-> is a Possessive Adjective

So the main work was done by the word My
Because it is Showing an ownership
Words / List
- So in order to tell ownership We use these words
- Don't worry about it how and where to use them because this below table is ready to clear your all confusions
|Subject ||Change Into |
|I ||My |
|We ||Our |
|You ||Your |
|He ||His |
|She ||Her |
|They ||Their |
If you are confuse even after seeing the table don't worry about it because after this explanation
you will never have any confusion left. well start from first which is
I --------- My:
Let say you want to tell your ownership of something then you will use My
Ex: My Mobile, My Car , My Laptop ok!! so this is for you when you show your ownership
We --------- Our:
Let say we are the citizen of any country and we are the owner of one thing
Ex:Our Flag - "Our" means not just we have one owner we have many people own the same thing
You --------- Your:
When use your when your are not showing the ownership of your but someone's else
Ex: "Your shoes are nice" - > in this examples you are not prasing yourself but somone else ok
He --------- His:
His is pretty much like "The Word you" but - We use "His" when are saying
the ownership of a man Like: His clothes are nice
She --------- Her :
Here is same as "The Word He" but We "Her" In A little differnt manner - because we use
"Her" for a female
Ex: Her Book is nice
- This is your mobile
- This is my Computer
- That was my laptop
- They are my Students
- They have my phone
- She has my Laptop
- He is my Friend
- "It Expresses The Definite Quantity Of Noun"
- Or in easy words we can say that "It tells us the exact number of something"
- Let's say someone asks me "Mr. Naveed Tell Me How Many Students Are In Your Class"
- So I Say "I Have Three Students"
I ← Subject
Have ← Showing The Possession
Five ← Adjective Of Number
Students ← Noun
- In this example Five is the Adjective of Number and students are noun and five is telling us the quantity OR Number of Students
- So now if anyone asks you what is the Adjective Of Number so you can tell -> It Expresses The Definite Quantity Of Noun / Pronoun
- Or in easy words it tells us the exact number of somthing ok!!! . if you are still confuse don't worry i am giving you one more example
