can some one please help regarding the usage of pronoun in two independent clauses.

EX 1: She likes music, and Mary will launch her first album this year.
EX 2: Mary likes music; She will launch her first album this year.

As far as i know, EX 2 is correct and EX 1 is incorrect.

Please confirm whether usage of pronoun in EX 1 is correct or not ?

Hi mahi816,

Generally, the antecedent (the noun that the pronoun refers to) should come before the pronoun, so that it's immediately clear what the pronoun is referring to. While there are occasional cases where this is not the case and the sentence is still correct, in general, it's a good idea to follow this rule, and the GMAT will typically prefer you to follow the rule as well. So on the GMAT, Ex 1 would be incorrect and Ex 2 would be correct.

For more on common pronoun mistakes, see this article:

I hope that helps! :)
