Here is a kind of rule, may be halp to many.....

In the vast majority of cases, if a pronoun agrees with both a previous subject and a previous object, it will refer to the subject, even though the object is usually closer. Examples:

Several years ago the diet industry introduced a variety of appetite suppressants, but some of these drugs caused such severe stomach disorders that they were banned by the Food and Drug Administration.
Here they refers not to the nearby object disorders but to the subject drugs.

A huge flying reptile that died out with the dinosaurs some 65 million years ago, the Quetzalcoatlus had a wingspan of 36 feet, and it is believed to have been the largest flying creature the world has ever seen.
Here it refers not to the nearby object wingspan but to the subject Quetzacoatlus.

Factory outlet stores, operated by manufacturers, are usually located miles from downtown and regional shopping centers so that they do not compete directly with department stores in the same trading area.
Here they refers not to the nearer objects manufacturers, miles, or centers, but to the subject stores.
