Hi @gmat-ninja

The OA is C.However, my confusion is that "their" should refer to the Judges but the option states "Authority of international judges", leaving the pronoun with out any antecedent.
Please help me understand.

Hey Manas,

I guess you are making an assumption that pronoun cannot refer to a noun in prepositionsl phrase. That's a wrong notion. Pronouns can refer to a noun in a prepositional phrase. Their are few OG examples also citing this same logic. I will post the link soon.

So their in option C can easily refer to judges.

Consider kudos if that helped.

Yes, sumit411 is right. "Their" can certainly refer to "judges," especially since there is no other plural noun for it to refer to. If the subject were another plural noun, we might be inclined to make that the antecedent, but there is no such cause of confusion here.
