  1. 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'

  2. 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!
