Solve Problems with Pronoun Agreement


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.


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.
