Can you please be so kind as to check the above sentences and answers and let me know if there are any mistakes?
Your answer for 3 is wrong. The others are right.
"It depended upon crops . . ."
So then the answer for number three would be subject pronoun then is that correct?
Can you explain why it is a subject and also considered an object pronoun?
Yes. "It" is used as both a subject an object pronoun. In sentence three, it is the subject of depended.
I think I understand what you mean by subject of depended.
What is the best way to truly figure out whether a word is an object or subject pronoun?
