Identify the 'common gender noun' used in the following sentence:
The air-hostess was fed up with the complaints of the writer on board.

A

writer

B

complaint

C

board

D

air-hostess

Answer

The above mentioned sentence would have Option A, “writer” as the answer.

In the sentence, there are several nouns which are given: complaint, board, the air-hostess and the writer. The air-hostess is specifically a feminine noun and cannot be used for males and the rest, i.e., option B and C, complaint and board are both neutral nouns, which do not carry the sense of a specific gender. Whereas Option A, writer, can be used for both the genders, irrespective of the both.

Thus, Option A, is the correct answer.
