is saying this right:

theirs

  • LAL -

    That house is theirs.

  • LAL -

    is this sentence correct

    either alan or john will collect signatures for THEIRS petition on tuesday

    or is it HIS

  • LAL -

    The correct word in this sentence is HIS.

    The construction of "either . . . or" is singular so a singular pronoun is used.

    However, if the subject was plural and said, then --

    Alan and John will collect signatures for THEIR peitition on Tuesday.

  • LAL -

    is it his

  • LAL -

    Yes.
