I found something online that was talking about plurals and it said 'their' is a plural form or whatever, so I thought it might be both for singular on this question. I didn't know though.

I think this is plural because it is talking about everyone, get it?

'His or her' is singular, and 'their' is plural. But I don't even really remember most of what the website I had found talks about. I will look into the website you sent me.

I think D is wrong because the sentence says that EVERYONE so there for it means more then one So I think its C. If I am wrong please tell me!
