Having trouble with a new concept we are learning. In the sentence below should the answer be their or its and why? Thanks.
The marching band picked up (their, its) new uniforms today.

  • Language Arts -

    Deciding whether a collective noun is singular or plural can be confusing.

    In this sentence since the band picked up uniforms (plural), band must be plural. Therefore, the correct pronoun is "their."
