    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    Hello, Eradamene.

    (1) I think that the only "correct" answer -- if you want to follow the

    rules in grammar books -- is "she."

    (a) In regular English spoken by ordinary people, the answer could also be

    ""her" or "him."

    ***** Thank you for the question *****

    I'd vote for "C"

    Re: sentences

    I agree with you, Harry. But that is indeed a very awkward question.
