    1. I'd have said b because "they" is plural and "the site" is singular.

    (I only looked at #1)

    1. answer is b - it is a subject/verb agreement error because the subject and the verb do not agree?
    The sentence just doesn't make any sense.

    I think #1 is a pronoun problem. As Sra said, "site" is singular, and since it seems to be the antecedent, the pronoun should be "it" instead of "they."

    #2 is also a pronoun error, but it's not an agreement problem either.

    #1 is a pronoun/antecedent problem, and #2 is a shift in person problem. [Pronouns come in 3 "persons" -- first person (I, we), 2nd person (you), and 3rd person (he, she, it, they).]
