    Doubt about pronoum usage

    Hello, I'd like to know if I can use ''it'' and ''their'' refering to the same noun; it is, in certain extent, wrong, or more wrongful than ''it'' ''it'. Thank you;

    Re: Doubt about pronoum usage

    "Their" is an adjective (possessive form of "they"), not a pronoun, so it would have to be followed by some kind of noun or pronoun and is not interchangeable with the pronoun "it."
