What is grammatically wrong with the following sentence?
"If someone feels they haven’t been treated respectfully, the odds are they’re right."
Please see my answer to your last post. Note in this sentence there are two pronoun errors.
We'll be glad to check your answer.
It would be better here to change the subject noun than to change the pronouns.
So would I change it to the following:
The word someone is singular. Therefore you would change they’re to he or she.
You could do it that way -- but Guru's suggestion is better and not as awkward. Change someone to a plural pronoun.
Or a plural noun.
