(Which one is grammatical?)

  • English -

    All are correct under different circumstances.

    1 means he is running (is a candidate) for one of several class leadership positions.

    2 and 3 have different meanings, depending on context.

    2 could mean that he ran a race on behalf of one of the class leaders OR it could mean that he was a candidate for one particular class leadership positions.

    3 could mean that he ran a race on behalf of the topmost class leader (maybe, the president) OR it could mean that he was a candidate for the top class leadership position (maybe president).
