Grammar Quiz – There, Their, and They’re

There is used for naming a place, a thing, or the existence of something.

* There‘s food on the table.
* I have been there twice.

Their is used to show possession.

* That is their car.
* Their store is located near a mall.

They’re is a contraction of they are.

* I hope they’re safe. (I hope they are safe).
* They’re not attending the party. (They are not attending the party).

One effective strategy to test there, their, and they’re is to replace them with here, our, and we are, respectively. You will see that if you replace them with these phrases, they still sound like a correct sentence.

* I’ve been there twice. Ive been here twice. (Correct)
* That is their car. That is our car. (Correct)
* I hope they’re safe. I hope we are safe. (Correct)

If the sentence doesn’t sound right, then, you know that it is not correct. Again, this works most of the time, but not all the time.
