    Once you have broken down the sentence, can you put it back together and state the rules followed? Otherwise you just leave sentence shards all over the place. – John Lawler May 14 '18 at 15:12
  • This is a pronoun, and is the subject of the sentence. It's not an adjective; if it were, it would be placed in the sentence like "this pen."
  • my is a possessive adjective. It modifies the noun "pen."

This is a very basic sentence; have you visited the ELL site? You might find questions and answers there that are more appropriate for you.
