    Ok. This is the question Identify what is wrong with each italicized pronoun reference. Carolyn sang higher than the other sopranos but she didn't support it properly. placed too far from antecedent no specific antecedent ambiguous reference The italicized word is it.

    I thought maybe it was the first choice: placed too far from antecedent because it was too far away. Wasn't sure though.

    Too far away from what? (I just want to see what you are thinking before I give you the answer; sorry.)

    Haha it's ok. I thought (but I am not 100% sure) that it would be too far away from the main antecedent making it a remote reference in which the meaning is not be immediately clear to the reader. The antecedent is the word that a pronoun replaces or refers to. I thought it would be referring to her signing later along in the sentence but isn't clear.

    I like your explaining, but I am afraid to say that B is the correct answer, so you are incorrect, but good try, I could see why you'd say that.

    Dang, I was fumbling between the two. This online English explains it a little oddly. I really appreciate the help though. Thank you very much.
