This sentence looks like it has way too many pronouns! And what are they referring to? I think this sentence needs a Proper noun.

Also, the opening phrase is a modifier, so the Proper noun should come after the comma.

Choose:

The official answer is C.
Why A is not the correct answer


Can you edit the bottom part so the answer is not right under the question for people who may want to do the problem? That way people can practice and also have a discussion on why C is better :) My guess is that (A) and (C) are both good answers, just (C) is better.

But the original sentence also makes sense

IMO C. A doesn't have any clear antecedent for He.Rest other options are redundant.

There is no ambiguity in this case. C is the correct answer.
