Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    This alarm clock turns ___ off.

    • A.

      Themself

    • B.

      Itself

    • C.

      Herself

    • D.

      Yourself

    Correct Answer
    B. Itself
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "itself" because an alarm clock is an inanimate object and cannot turn "themself" or "herself" off. The pronoun "yourself" is also incorrect because it implies that the person using the alarm clock is responsible for turning it off, rather than the alarm clock having the ability to turn itself off. Therefore, "itself" is the most appropriate pronoun to use in this context.
