Hi, I'm not clear.
If we say "I like him", we should say "I love your"...
Which is the reason why we use "him" replacing "he" in this case?
Thanks a lot!

Rodrigo.

The correct answer is "I don't like him" which means "I'm not fond of him".

Hello Rodrigo,

The word 'he' is a pronoun that you use as a subject. The word 'him' is a pronoun that you use as an object. The word 'your' is a possessive adjective.

These are subject pronouns:

I
you
he
she
we
they
.

These are object pronouns:

me
you
him
her
us
them

You need to use an object pronoun in the test sentence because it is the object of the verb 'like'.

In the second sentence ("He is rude and loud."), the word 'he' is the subject of the sentence, so a subject pronoun is used in that sentence.
