How do you know when a Pronoun is ambiguous. Can Sentence structure give it away. Do multiple Nouns function as a sign. What strategies do you use to decide if a Pronoun is Ambiguous. The harder questions in OG12 contain questions where it seems the Pronouns are Ambigious when there really not. An example of this is question OG12 SC 101.

I look forward to your replies.

Ambiguous pronouns are always ambiguous. You might not think it's ambiguous because you are trying to logically follow the sentence, but if a pronoun has multiple antecedents, even if you can logically figure out what one it is referring to, is ambiguous.

Spend more time reading well written publications and works of fiction (see the GMAT Fiction thread) and this will become more clear to you.
