Sentence Correction Solution- Writing: Problem 2

The error in the sentence occurs at C (“they”). “They” is intended to refer to the antecedent “school board.” However, since “school board” is singular, the word “it” should be used instead. This error is commonly featured on the SAT and is often easily overlooked because the school board consists of several members; since the board itself is mentioned, though, the plural pronoun should not be used.
