Ok I have noticed this pattern somewhat and I am trying to discern whether it is true in SC.

If you have 2 pronouns, and 2 nouns to which they could refer, would the sentence and pronouns not be ambigous if the pronoun agrees in number?

For example in this sentence:

Congress is debating a bill requiring certain employers to provide workers with unpaid leave so that they can care for sick or newborn children.

they can refer to both Congress and Workers, but is it because they is plural and Congress is singular that this is unambiguous?

You have still bigger problem in this sentence, they can refer to either employers or to workers. It is dangling so should be more clearly defined as per GMAT rules. You are correct about Congress being singular.

still trying to figure this one out, if you have a singular subj and a plural subj and a singular pronoun and a plural pronoun would that make things unambigious no matter placement?

IN GMAT style you will definitely not have something which is so dangling. In GMAT they will replace "they" with employees or employers. So do not worry about it.
