Solution to Exercise on Identifying Pronouns

The pronouns and proforms in the text are highlightened and numbered.

Making one[1] 's home in an unpublished novel wasn't without its[2] compensations. All the boring day-to-day mundanities that[3] we[4] conduct in the real world get in the way of narrative flow and are thus[5] generally avoided. The car didn't need refuelling, there were never any wrong numbers, there was always enough hot water, and vacuum-cleaner bags came in only two sizes --- upright and pull-along. There were other, more subtle differences, too. For instance, no one[6] ever needed to repeat themselves[7] in case you[8] didn't hear, no one[9] shared the same name, talked at the same time or had a word annoyingly 'on the tip of their[10] tongue'. Best of all[11], the bad guy was always someone[12] you[13] knew of and - Chaucer aside - there wasn't much farting. But there were some downsides. The relative absence of breakfast was the first and most notable difference to my[14] daily timetable.
