Anaphora resolution has been an active research area in the field of natural language processing. There are various methods to resolve the pronouns that refer to nouns but this paper presents the rule based approach to resolve the anaphora. The rules have been derived by the execution of the instruction from a set of data which consist of a specific type of knowledge of verbs in Hindi language. The Hindi language is resource poor language which has no specific structure of writing. We have proposed a model that performs pronominal anaphora resolution task based on gender and number agreement. Anaphora resolution is very complex and challenging task to handle so we have analyzed the similarities and variations between their agreement and pronouns in Hindi language. This paper exhibits the experiments that are governed on different data sets in Hindi Language along with its result based on the F-score and future directions.
