which is a vague pronoun and why? this increasing pollution is a big problem or this is a big problem

  • com/150 - ,

    A vague pronoun means that it's not clear to what or whom it refers.

    I assume this is your pair of sentences:

    "25a. Air pollution normally increases along with population growth. This increasing pollution is a big problem for many cities.
    25b. Air pollution normally increases along with population growth. This is a big problem for many cities."

    In 25a, "this" could refer to population growth which is clearly not the intention.
    25b clarifies this confusion.

  • com/150 - ,

    In a senior moment, I reversed these two sentences.

    25a does not have a vague pronoun.
