Used to indicate a male person or animal that is the subject of a verb: Maurice told Mary that he had been preparing for the trip to France since last year.

Marla was told that, as a stallion, he was a great riding horse.

he (HEE) (pronoun)
When referring to a person whose gender is unspecified or unknown: Before boarding, each passenger should make certain that he or she has a ticket.

Avoid using the generic he or him when the subject could be either male or female. Use the third-person plural or the phrase he or she (some grammar books say we should not use he/she).

It is also acceptable to write in the third person plural: "Before boarding, passengers should make certain that they have their tickets." It is grammatically unacceptable to write: "Before boarding, each passenger should make certain that they have their tickets."

A singular subject must have an applicable singular verb and a plural subject should use a plural verb.
