i have a doubt regarding antecedents for pronoun,.....
"Fossils of the arm of a sloth found in Puerto Rico in 1991, and dated at 34 million years old, made it the earliest known mammal of
the greater antiles islands. "
OG explanation for this sentence being wrong- "sloth is the object of a preposition and not the subject of the sentence
, there is no reasonable antecedent for the pronoun it
but in OG13,#7,
"The intricate structure of the compound insect eye, with its hundreds of miniature eyes called ommatidia, helps explain why scientists have assumed that it evolved independently of the vertebrae eye."
above is the correct sentence as per OG....
here, compound insect eye
is the object of the preposition... so in the modifier "with its...."
cannot refer to compound insect eye.... but OG says its
refers to the compound insect eye..........
contradicting explanations in two different sentences... help pls...
Live, don't merely Exist.
