2.1 Nouns, Pronouns, and Agreement

This book covers the lesson relating to nouns, pronouns, and agreement.

Solve Problems with Pronoun Agreement

Example

In which sentence do the pronouns and antecedents agree?

(1) Freda repainted her bedroom and their closet, too.
(2) She varnished the floor and can’t go into the bedroom until it dries.

Answer

In sentence (2), the antecedent floor and the pronoun it agree in person (third person) and number (singular). In sentence (1), Freda and their do not agree in number. Freda is singular and their is plural.
