    Please Help Analyse Structure Of This Sentence. THX

    Jerry then lassos the 'sausage' and Tom with it through the mouse hole.
    Hi, teachers, I wonder are there any errors in the above sentence? What does the pronoun "it" refer to?? The context suggests nothing.


    The preceding sentence is:
    Firstly, Tom paints his finger the color of a sausage so that Jerry mistakes it for a sausage. Jerry then lassos the 'sausage' and Tom with it through the mouse hole.

    Jerry then lassos (the 'sausage' (=Tom's finger) and Tom) with it (through the mouse hole).

    Firstly, Tom paints his finger the color of a sausage so that Jerry mistakes it for a sausage. Jerry then lassos the 'sausage' and Tom with it (it = the sausage).

    It refers back to Tom's finger, which looks like a sausage because Tom painted it.
