Exercises for Pronoun Antecedent Agreement

Everyone is the precursor and it`s always singular, so you need a singular pronoun. We use it because the man or woman is not specified. Someone is the precursor and is always treated as a singular, so he adopts the singular pronoun. As no sex is known, we use it. None can be singular or plural, depending on the noun in the prepositional sentence (the driver). Since it is plural (conductor), the pronoun is the plural (possessive). Some (like all, most, many and none) may be singular or plural, depending on the noun in the prepositional sentence (of the children). In this case, the children are in the plural, so the pronoun is in the plural. It is also the possessive pronoun, that is, the mothers of the children. In this quiz on the antecedent agreement of the pronoun, you will be tested on certain types of words that English learners find very difficult and with which they often make mistakes. Here are some of the words: Everyone is always singular and therefore has a singular pronoun. It is not him or her, as these are used as an object.

So, it has to be him or her. The precursor is neither (not young), and none is always singular, so it has a singular pronoun. It is to be (not his own) because it refers only to men. Several is always in the plural, so we can use the general plural pronoun. In this case, the noun is singular (roof), so the pronoun is singular.
