Ahmed's explanation is good from an ESL standpoint. I'd just like to clarify that "my" is not an adjective; it's a determiner. Adjectives must follow it (viz., "my big brother" vs. "big my brother") and other determiners can't be used before it (viz., "the big brother" vs. "the my brother"). "Yours" functions as an entire noun phrase with ellipsis. Compare: "Bob's brother gets along with John's [___]."
