Possessive Adjectives: my your his hers our their

Possessive Pronouns: mine yours his hers ours theirs


"of hers" is a prepositional phrase.

"of" is the preposition

"hers" is the object of the preposition, and all objects are nouns or pronouns, not adjectives


"He is a great friend of hers." (pronoun)


"Her great friend..." (adjective)
