Read the supporting details then correct the sentence below. Sentence 2: She patented it in 1935 (US patent #2,118,318) and started the Magee-Hale Park-O-Meter Company to manufacturer his parking meters. Which of the following changes should be made to correct sentence 2?

A Change "She" to "He"

In order to correct sentence 2, you would need to change “She” to “He.” This sentence contains a gender related error. The subject is “Carlton Cole Magee” who is a male, not a female; and in the last of the sentence, it say "his parking meters", therefore, “He” should be used instead of “She”. “Company” should remain capitalized, as it is part of the company’s name. “Started” is used appropriately in the past tense and there is not a need to insert a comma after “1935.”
