Any moms really good with grammar (pronouns) bored and wanna take a look at something for me?

This has already been handed in, so I'm not asking anybody to do my work for me, I just want to compare and get an idea of how I did. The more I do these it seems the more easily I get confused on them, lol.

Need to underline any errors in pronoun usage. Sentences may have more than one, one , or none.

- I enjoy vacationing at the beach because you can choose from so many activities.
- Eddie told his brother he needed to study more.
- Students should talk with their instructors when having problems so that they won't fall behind in class.
- When I placed the book on the shelf, it fell.
- I moved the old sofa out of the garage and cleaned it thoroughly.
- Those people standing next to me are members of my family, and this person across the room is my friend.
- We enjoy walking because it's great exercise and gives you the chance to enjoy the beauty of nature.
- The six of us, we will be handing out programs at the ga

  • Thanks Sandra. That's why I was wondering about it because I felt like I should have had more marked than I did, and yes it really is!

  • When I placed the book on the shelf, it fell

    This is a misplaced pronoun. It makes it sound like the shelf fell.

    It could say "When I set the book down it fell" or "After I set it down on the shelf, the book fell."

  • A lot of these are ambiguous reference (like what Ati 13 says) or number/person match (corrected in CAPS) .

    -I enjoy vacationing at the beach because I can choose from so many activities (I not you)

    -Eddie told his brother he needed to study more. (Who needed to study more? the brother or Eddie?)

    -Students should talk with their instructors when having problems so that they won't fall behind in class. Looks okay

    -When I placed the book on the shelf, it fell. (what fell?)

    -I moved the old sofa out of the garage and cleaned it thoroughly. (cleaned the garage or the sofa?)

    -THESE people standing next to me are members of my family, and THAT person across the room is my friend.

    -We enjoy walking because it's great exercise and gives US the chance to enjoy the beauty of nature.

    -The six of us will be handing out programs at the ga. (DELETED WE)
