Read the sentence to determine if there is any grammatical error in it. Choose the letter corresponding to the part that contains the error. Ignore the errors of punctuation, if any ?
A. Either Lisa or Karen
B. will always volunteer
C. their valuable
D. time to serve on our board.
E. No error
Answer : C. their valuable
- “Their” is incorrect because it is a plural third-person possessive pronoun, but the use of “either (A) or” indicates a singular form. It should be “her”.
- (B) “Will always volunteer” is a singular verb phrase and is correct.
- (D) “Time” is correct regardless of whether it is modified by a singular (“her”) or plural (“their”) possessive pronoun,
