A typical stamp collector will often spend hundreds of dollars each year on stamps and have over two thousand unique stamps in their collection.

(A) have over two thousand unique stamps in their collection
(B) has over thousand stamps in their collection
(C) have over thousands unique stamps in one's collection
(D) have over two thousand unique stamps in his or her collection
(E) have over two thousand unique stamps in its collection


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What could be the answer in this case?
Also,one of my observation is "A typical stamp collector " is singular then why "spend" is not "spends"? Please help me clarify this.

Quickly identify that "their" is a subject-verb disagreement.
Between C/D, D correctly identifies it as his or her.

To answer your question, the parallelism is between will spend and will have. Similarly, its not "will spends" or "will has".

+1 B

You have to understand the meaning of the sentence, which refers to the future.

(A) have over two thousand unique stamps in their collection
(B) has over thousand stamps in their collection
(C) have over thousands unique stamps in one's collection
(D) have over two thousand unique stamps in his or her collection
(E) have over two thousand unique stamps in its collection

A B gone due to their

E wrong due to 'its'

c gone due to 'over thousands' incorrect usage.

left with D

Can someone give some explanation?
is it allow to split the sentence from "will" like this question. I thought the answer should be: "A typical stamp collector has..." not "A typical stamp collector will have".

Which one of this sentence is correct:
He will go to Europe and work every day.
or
He will go to Europe and works every day.

Yes, "will" can cover two (or more) verbs.

Your first sentence is correct. It implies that he will go to Europe (in future) , and THERE he will work everyday (in future).

The second sentence is incorrect because it means that NOW he works everyday and IN FUTURE he will go to Europe. In case you actually want to convey this meaning, you must present the events chronologically, i.e. first the present and then the future.
