Hi GMATNinja,

In in the correct option D, i think they refers to investment officers and their refers to several corporations.

So if my reasoning is correct, they and their refer to different entities (investment officers and several corporations's).

Is this case violating the pronoun rule?

Many thanks and I'm looking forward to receive your reply :-)



Hello leanhdung,

I will be glad to help you with this one. :-)

A pronoun must refer to only one noun without any ambiguity whatsoever. This is the only rule that we must keep in mind while looking for ambiguous pronoun reference.

You are absolutely correct in saying that while pronoun they refer to investment officers, pronoun their refers to several corporations.

However, there is no ambiguity whatsoever in the reference of these two pronouns. The context of the sentence allows they to refer to only investments officers while allows their to refer to several corporations only.

So these two different pronouns clearly refer to two different noun entities.

Hope this helps. :-)
Thanks.
Shraddha

Hello yyyyyttttt,

I am afraid Choice C is not the correct answer for this question.

The word allow does not require subjunctive verb as we see in Choice C.

This word is followed by a to verb phrase as we see in the correct answer choice D.

Hope this helps. :-)
Thanks.
