Snarky, my ELA assignment is to find the error on this poster. Help!
The mistake is in the tagline running along the bottom of the poster just above the credits.
Where does this movie poster go wrong? The possessive pronoun, their, does not agree with its antecedent, no one. 'No one' is singular so it needs a singular possessive pronoun (e.g., his, her, its). In this case, it seems that 'his' would have been the best choice.No one can outrun their destiny.
- A pronoun must agree in number with the noun it replaces (the antecedent).
- No one can outrun his destiny.
