This question already has an answer here:
Look at the following sentence that I just saw while viewing a profile:
Apparently, this user prefers to keep an air of mystery about them.
As it looks,
them refers to
this user, right?
This user refers to one person; however, the pronoun
them is used which refers to many people and seems incompatible.
Can somebody explain why this sentence is right and why
her aren't used?
