Question:

"Most businesses keep accurate assessments of their prophet margins and often require attendance at weekly meetings."
Which of the following corrects an error in the sentence above?

A Replace prophet with profit
Explaination


"Replace prophet with profit" is the correct answer. This is correct because a prophet is someone who foretells the future, whereas profit is financial gain.
"Replace businesses with business’s." This is incorrect because the suffix -es indicates a plural form, while an apostrophe and -s indicate ownership.
"Replace attendance with attendants." This is incorrect because attendance is the act of attending, and attendants are people who attend.
"Replace their with there." This is incorrect because the word their indicates ownership, while the word there refers to a location.
