Possessive adjectives are the kind of adjectives which show possession. For example, you might see the following sentence:

Maria's pretty daughter and she walked to town.

You would see "Maria's pretty" at the beginning. Both of those are adjectives. "Maria's" is the possessive adjective in that sentence.
