Test Your Understanding

The following short, two-part test will give you a good idea of how well you understand pronoun-antecedent agreement.

The first five sentences prove that everyone makes mistakes! The incorrect versions of these sentences were taken straight from current programs and commercials on national TV and radio.

Click on the pronoun that agrees with the antecedent in each sentence.

For the last part of the test, select the appropriate pronoun from the drop-down menu to complete each sentence correctly. The passage is taken fromThe Hound of the Baskervilles, a Sherlock Holmes novel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
