my, our


Possessive pronouns demonstrate ownership. Similar to words that use apostrophes to denote ownership, like the dog's or all the teachers', possessive pronouns are a special form of these that are created using the pronouns.

All the possessive pronouns can be listed.

When used alone, they are:

mine, yours, his, hers, ours, theirs, whose

When they modify a noun, they are:

my, your, his, her, its, our, their, whose

So, in the sentence, the only possessive pronouns are the my in my sister and the our in our new apartment.
