    Each boy and each girl has done HER/THEIR homework.

    This is not my homework.

    Which of the following is correct and, if the both are correct, is there any difference in meaning?

    1:-Each boy and each girl has done her homework.

    2:-Each boy and each girl has done their homework.


    Thanks in advance.

    I would use "have" in number 2.
