what is the correct way to write this sentence?
should the noun "he" be change to a plural noun
Changes can be seen in the thoughts of the old man, because he questions whether Anowa's rebellious ways brought death upon her family, or whether Yebi relied on an unjust patriarchal system.
"He" is a pronoun that refers to "the old man" - a single person. If he is the one questioning Anowa's rebellious ways, then it is correct. A plural pronoun would refer to more than one person. If other people (plural) were doing the questioning, you could still not use "they" here because there is no mention of them in this sentence and nothing for the pronoun to be connected with.
