    Indefinite pronouns/help
    Message from mohammad51 posted on 11-08-2020 at 20:47:56 (D | E | F)
    Hello everyone
    Please, if could help either to mention the rule or suggest answers.
    Thank you in advance

    Indefinite pronouns questions
    1. Everyone has taken (his, their) payment.
    2. Several eyewitnesses volunteered to give (his, their) accounts.
    3. Anyone can lose (her, their) eyesight.
    4. Another reported (his, their) case to the police.
    5 . Somebody left (her, their) handbag in the lecture hall.
    -----
    It is suggested to use a plural pronoun when referring back to an indefinite pronoun.
    Otherwise, some suggest using ( or ...or ) ex. Everybody needs his or her pencil.

    So, according to what is said answers will be as follow :
    1. their 2 for several it is always followed by a plural verb .. this is clear
    3. their 4. their 5 their
    Am I right or not ?

    hello
    Thank you very much dear teacher gerondif,
    So also please dear teacher gerondif,help me with this another question
    ---
    __________ of the boys offered their help to the little old lady who was crossing the street.

    a. Another
    b. Each
    c. All
    d. One
    Of course I suggest choice C (all) is 100 % working
    However, it seems to me also ( each )
    But here ( boys ) are from one gender
    So, 90 % I avoid each ?? Although it is said ( using plural pronoun when referring back to an indefinite pronoun
