Because he’s the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now.
So we’ll hunt him because he can take it. Because he’s not our hero.
He’s a silent guardian, a watchful protector, a dark knight

In the argument given above, If the first boldfaced portions plays the role of "GMAT" then what does second boldface represents?

Yeah, I think I'm in my third year here at GMAT Club, and I've never met Bunuel, either.

But I do know this: bear hugs are what he gives bears. And the Holy Grail is still looking for him.

Sir,
Use of "him" for "she" is a pronoun issue here. ;)

Well Ninja is using the modifier to refer Siri, so she is Siri.

Last time when she was in Mexico, (ask who) Siri!!!

Haha! Yes, it should be clear from the modifier that Siri is "she", but I suppose it could be clearer.

Also, in my original sentence, "he" had no referent. But we all know which guy we're talking about, given the topic of this thread. But in order to pay proper respects to Bunuel, perhaps the pronoun should be capitalized.

With those two issues in mind, how about this instead:

    Last time Siri was in Mexico City, she asked Him for directions.

Better? :-D :cool:

Sir
It seems that last sentence is run-on sentence! Could you clarify it, please?
Did you use "last time......" as initial modifier?
Thanks__
