    Re: it or them

    Hello Siruss

    I think I'd agree with your answers; except I'd use "climate" in #3, not "climates".

    I might phrase the questions 1 slightly differently, though:

    1. The Korean kept their own language and culture, and they still keep it/them today.

    "Korean" > "Koreans"; and "keep" is an odd verb, in this context. Perhaps "retained/retain".

    All the best,

    MrP
