#### SC - 1000 - #773

Sat May 26, 2007 7:46 am
The last "wild" Indian in North America, according to anthropologist Alfred Kroeber, was the lone survivor of California's lost Yahi tribe, which staggered out of the mountains near Lassen Peak in 1912, deep in mourning for the last of his companions, expecting to be butchered and eaten by white ranchers.
(A) which
(B) who
(C) that
(D) the survivor having
(E) having

Does "who" refer to animals also.?? OA is B .. Any explanations

Look at the sentence structure. "Who" would refer to the lone survivor. Lone survivor is referring back to the Indian in North America so it is safe to conclude that you would use "Who" as the pronoun for the lone survivor.

OA is B because WHO is a relative clause that refers to immediate noun in preceding clause. Now the Noun is Survivor i.e which is nothing but Wild i.e an animal.

Remember that Noun can be placed directly ot noun + preposition form. Be cautious of this.

"who" here refers to the lone survivor. I did not find any animals in this sentence
