EXAMPLE

Ali is a boy. Alis is Aqsa’s Brother. Ali is the younger brother of Aqssa. Ali and Aqssa play together. Ali and Aqsa like mango. Ali and Aqssa goes to school together.

All the above lines seems rather long-winded, after replacing with pronouns it could read:

Ali is a boy. He is Aqsa’s Brother.He is the younger brother of Aqssa. They play together. They like mango. They  goes to school together.

All the above sentence look pretty now, so we can say that the pronoun play a vital role in English language.
