If you’re looking improve your score in SC, be sure to watch all the videos for expert advice on this tricky section.

The eighth installment of the lesson, shown above, is all about pronoun errors on GMAT SC. As expert instructors Jen Rugani and Dave Ingber explain, once you understand pronoun errors, they’re pretty easy to spot.

You just need to be sure that every underlined pronoun on the GMAT SC section a) has a clear and logical antecedent and b) agrees with its antecedent in number. Watch out for pronoun/antecedent agreement when the sentence contains an unusual antecedent (ex. a collective noun, noun clause, or indefinite pronoun).
