Hi,

In Manhattan Foundations of GMAT Verbal Drill 2.1 Find the Nouns Q5, one needs to identify noun(s) in sentence "I am only happy if you are happy; my happiness depends on yours."

As per my understanding I, am, you, my, yours are the nouns. However answers says "happiness" is the only noun in this sentence.

I am unable to understand how. Please explain

I and you are pronouns because they stand in place of a noun (the actual person). My and yours are possessive possessive pronouns (so not nouns). Am is a verb. That leaves happiness as the only noun in the sentence.

Thanks for the answer. What part of speech is happy?
