raccoons nature's robin hood stealing from the rich giving to
the poor gorging themselves on garbage Well it's been a
while since we've read that story What This questions all
about making sure that parallelism is alive and well on
ly the sentence with a singular pronoun in a past
tense verb solves our problems Ideas On the other hand
well we recommend meditation and maybe some poison there may
be no we like reckons sorry Just kidding Just kidding
All right Well the pronoun they is plural and the
noun raccoon is singular So we have an issue with
agreement there in a and b i'd only hates one
raccoon so the sentence should on ly refer to a
single unlucky little dude Splitting this sentence into two would
be okay if it wasn't for the mismatch verb tenses
like and see there the present tense eats doesn't match
