My friends who lives in China just sent me this snapshot of a test which she used to practice her English language skill-set. I took a look at it, and something bothers me. I might be completely wrong here, by no means am I saying that it really IS wrong. Could you guys and gals help me out here?
I'm referring to blank space 2, we have two options..
Option A = with.
Option B = up.
We're going to take a look at " Instead, the studies ended ..... giving their names to the "Hawthorne effect", ...
This alone confuses me. Apparently, B is the correct answer for blank space 2.
So the complete sentence ( comma excluded ) would be ;
Instead, the studies ended up giving their names to the ...
How is a "study", which is a thing, not a person, supposed to give up his/her/its name? I thought that "their" reefers to a group of people.
Could somebody clear this up for me? Kindly appreciated!
