During the 1980s, home mortgage foreclosures resulted in thousands of Americans being evicted from homes <that they can> no longer afford mortgage payments.

The reasonable alternatives are:
(a) that they could
(b) for which they could

Which one would you pick and why?

Thanks.

I would pick B.

B clearly says for what mortgage is for.

To me, use of word "they" seems confusing. it stands for "homes" or for "americans". B seems ok out of these choices.

I would go for B.

home mortgage foreclosures is the subject & 'for' clearly refers to that.

Also the use of they is confusing & has no clear antecedent.
