is this sentence correct? 'My report is about what the president has to be and what they do.'

  • speech -

    i guess that's okay.
    if you want to sound a little better, you could say 'My report is about what the ideal president should be like and what they do'

  • speech -

    Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Since you say the "president" and that word is singular, why not "and what he/she does." Especially now when we might have a lady president, the "he/she" or "s/he" is pertinent!
