Hello,

Can someone explain this sentence. "Him" refers to?

Thanks in advance

The idea behind the Personal Long Letter campaign is that a single impassioned constituent may sway a lawmaker’s opinion, whereas a half-dozen banded together only causes him alarm.

A) a half-dozen banded together only causes him alarm
B) only alarm is caused by a half-dozen banded together
C) only alarm has been caused by a half-dozen banded together
D) a half-dozen banded together only cause him alarm
E) a half-dozen have caused him only alarm when banded together

a very valid question, logically it should refer to lawmaker, but since lawmaker is in possessive form, so only possessive pronoun can refer to lawmaker. but here "him" personal pronoun in objective form is used, looks like i need to peep inside mhmt sentence correction guide again for more details.
