Read the following sentence and choose the correct possessive pronoun or pronouns to complete it-robin and paul will drive what car to the airport and leave it for you to pick up?

Robin and Paul will drive what car to the airport and leave it for you to pick up.The pronoun that will replace the word 'what' is a possessive adjective, a word placed before a noun (car) to describe that noun as belonging to the antecedent(s).The difficulty in choosing the correct pronoun is that we don't know if the car is jointly owned by Robin and Paul. In that case, the correct possessive adjective is:Robin and Paul will drive their car to the airport and leave it for you to pick up.We don't know if it's owned by Robin or Paul. If Robin and Paul are both males, the singular, possessive adjective will create a 'vague pronoun-antecedent reference'.Robin and Paul will drive his car to the airport and leave it for you to pick up.To correct the vague pronoun-antecedent reference, the sentence will need rewording using a possessive noun: Robin and Paul will drive Robin's car to the airport and leave it for you to pick up. (or 'will drive in Paul's car)The last option is that Robin is a female and Paul is a male. This will make the pronoun choice a little simpler:Robin and Paul will drive her car to the airport and leave it for you to pick up.Robin and Paul will drive his car to the airport and leave it for you to pick up.
