The cost of the El Paso tour includes admission to two museums, a play, and two other cultural attractions, but anyone wishing to cross the border should bring their passport.

a. but anyone wishing to cross the border should bring their passport
b. and everyone who wishes to cross the Mexican border should be bringing their passport
c. but anyone wishing to cross the border should bring his or her passport
d. and everyone wishing to cross the border should bring his or her passport
e. to such an extent that anyone who wishes to cross the border should bring his or her passport

Hi!
First of all, I found a mistake in OE: it says that option D does not correct the fundamental disagreement between anyone and their, when in fact it does.
Secondly, can anyone explain the difference between "anyone" and "everyone" and does this difference matter in this question?
Thanks. :)

c. but anyone wishing to cross the border should bring his or her passport - make a contrast, therefore sentance makes sense

d. and everyone wishing to cross the border should bring his or her passport - using and twice does dissorts the sentance

I do not think that the difference between anyone and everyone in this sentence is relevant. Rather C vs D is testing the structure of the sentence - using and twice does not make sense, while using BUT does.

Therefore C.
