Other questions about "Cubicle"

Q: Since my cubicle adjacent to his, I overheard him making plans for the weekend.

Why this sentence is used "his"?
I guess this sentence omitting "cubicle" after "his" right??

And also, regarding "I overheard him" , why it was used "him" instead of his??
A: Okay so there is a slight grammatical error, between the words “cubicle” and “adjacent” there should be the word “is”. This word is needed for the sentence to flow and essentially gives a verb to the noun “cubicle”. The full sentence would be: “Since my cubicle is adjacent to his, I overheard him making plans for the weekend.”
Now as for your questions, “his” and “him” are both words (pronouns) used in this sentence to present the male coworker- in this sense you have to keep in mind of gender because the words will change depending on it.
When you say/ write the word “his” it makes it into a possessive pronoun- ie “his book”, “her pen” (her is the female version of his), “his paper”. This differs from the word “him” which speaks directly of the person of whom the discussion is about.
In the last part of the sentence, it says “I overheard him” so it again talks about you hearing the coworker.
One way that may help you with this is to switch out the pronouns of the sentence with proper nouns (people’s names). So when you see the word his you can change it to something like Timmy’s or Billy’s or Rob’s- any name would work as long as it represents a male- and don’t forget to add in the “‘s” after the name! It shows the possession of the proper noun. And in terms of the “him” you can again just switch out the word with the same name that you did for the “his “, except this time you don’t have to add in the “‘s” because it is not possessive.
