Pop Quiz: How competent are you with English?

Here’s a little English pop quiz that I just posted on Twitter. It’s only one question. Let’s see if you can get it right.

I plan to follow-up with an answer and an explanation in about a week (maybe sooner).

    pronouns ? . . . think ‘antecedents’ 🙂

    The question is considered obsolescent. The preferred way to ask the question is “If anyone has a question, they can ask me after class.”

      You are correct. Denny is probably attempting to make some point about gender inclusive language, perhaps as it relates to God, or political correctness run amuck.

    Denny, I would infer that there are only males in the class or that the speaker is being deliberately provocative.
