Example Question #32 : Sentence Completion

What option would best replace the underlined section of the given sentence?

The survivors are in the hospital. 

Possible Answers:





Correct answer:



The correct answer is "they." "They" is a pronoun used to refer to two or more people. Since the subject "survivors" is plural, we know we need to replace it with a plural pronoun. The other options "she" and "he" are singular, and the option "them" is used to replace the object of a sentence, not the subject. Therefore, the best option is "they."
