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.

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

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!!!

Am I correct GMATNinja

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.

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

Better?

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

Bunuel is the Godfather of Mathematicians! He is one of the GMAT Gods. His brain is a complex machine that churns numbers faster than the computer and he is currently in the middle of starting his own testing examination called BunuelMAT!
