Pronoun Agreement: agr@ 
EXPLANATION: 
A pronoun is used to replace a noun (a person, a place, or a thing). We call the noun that is replaced as the antecedent of the pronoun. Therefore, remember that when you use a pronoun, it must have an antecedent first. In addition, remember that a pronoun must agree in number with the word or words it replaces.
