Hi
I came about this (so called) simple SC but I am a little clueless.
Q. Neither Tom nor Steve could figure out why they failed in the exam.
Now the answer that I saw was as below
A. Neither Tom nor Steve could figure out why he failed in the exam.

What if they were different genders?
Q. Neither Tom nor Phillina could figure out why they failed in the exam.
In this case what waould the correct answer be?

Ans Neither Tom nor Phillina could figure out why she failed in the exam.

in this case you have to use she as it should match to the noun closer to it .
