Rule for 8 and 9 Points -

When two or more than two pronouns came in a sentence, we use them in the sequence of 231.

But if there is the sense of guilt, crime, sin ( bad sense), the sequence is 123.

Rules for 10 and 11 Points -

If the words like Army, Jury, Crew, Committee, Fleet etc show the unity in action, we take them as singular and use singular verb and pronouns ( Sentence No. 10).

But if they show division in their unity or action, we consider themĀ  plural and use plural verb and plural pronouns (Sentence No 11).

Rule for Sentence no 12-

When we use two or more nouns with Each or Every, we consider them as singular and take singular pronoun / common pronoun.

In case there are male and female nouns, we must use his/her as pronoun. In the past his was used.

But now it is considered the sexist term and has been replaced by his/her. Somewhere common pronoun 'they' is also used.
