Identify the sentence with correct pronoun agreement.

(a) I know who parks his car illegally in the stall reserved for the provost.

(b) I know whom parks his car illegally in the stall reserved for the provost.

(c) Everyone at the building permit office wanted their application to be processed within a few working days.

(d) Everyone at the building permit office wanted their applications to be processed within a few working days.

I'm undecided between (c) and (d): Since speaking about everyone should applications be singular or plural?? (c) sounds better to me but is it correct in grammar?

    Get down to basics again:

    who (s) ... his (s)

    whom (s, but object form) ... (doesn't matter!)

    everyone (s) ... their (pl)

    everyone (s) ... their (pl)

    It's A.
