Pronoun-Antecedent Agreement Reminder

As almost all of you are mentioning at least one restaurant in your Contrast Paragraph, remember that a restaurant is a COLLECTIVE NOUN.

Collective nouns are always singular, so ALL PRONOUNS REFERRING TO THE RESTAURANT NEED TO BE SINGULAR.

That means that a restaurant is an IT and IT has ITS menu and ITS food.

Make sure that you are proofreading for this form of agreement.
