- Published on 18 Jan 17

a. 1
b. 2
c. 3
d. 4
e. 5

ANSWER: 3
 
Replace 'his' with 'their'.

When two singular nouns are joined by 'and' refer two different persons the pronoun used for them should be 'plural'.

The correct sentence should be: The Party Chief and the Chief Minister expressed their views on demonetization in India.

Example: Ashwin and Hardik are brothers. They play cricket.
