Reply to "ellipsis"

"According to the survey, respondents have a clear idea of gender stereotypes in society and also identified areas where women are under-employed."

Is the sentence correct or it needs the subject pronoun "they" after "and" in the second clause?

Hi, DT—Yes, that sentence is correct as written. Ellipsis is not involved, however. You're just seeing two coordiated verb phrases, as in "He runs and swims."



'are not involved in discussing gender issues and drafting a policy document'

can this predicate be replaced by "are not involved in the discussion of gender issues and the drafting of a policy document"? Which is more proper?

Yes, both formulations can be used. Neither is more proper than the other.
