Last month, Beliance announced plans to cut more than 10,000 jobs and close some of its 800 grocery locations.
A. plans to cut more than 10,000 jobs and close some of its
B. its plans to cut more than at least 10,000 jobs and close some of their
C. plans to cut more than 10,000 jobs and to close some of their
D. that it plans to cut more than 10,000 jobs and closes some of its
E. their plans to cut more than 10,000 jobs and close some of their
Answer and Explanation
Explanation: This is an easy question. In this case, the subject of the sentence is singular in nature (Beliance) and therefore, the pronoun ‘their’ cannot be used for it. This helps us rule out options B, C and E. The second difference is a singular vs. plural verb, with “close” in A and “closes” in D.
In this case, that verb belongs to the infinitive, parallel with “to cut,” and so the only proper way to state that idea is “and to close.” Thus, option A is correct in this case.
