Hi Vinodsai1995
Answer choice C -This answer choice corrects the original Pronouns mistake by changing the non-human pronoun it to the feminine human pronoun she, which agrees with Abigail Adams. CORRECT.
While the answer choice D corrects the original Pronoun mistake and is grammatically correct, it is stylistically flawed. Adding the word 'also' creates redundancy.
