Here is a sentence from a schedule planner app:

In the app, you can easily group to-dos into projects and drag tasks within and between them.

I am not sure if the word "them" is used here for "to-dos" or "projects."

I would assume them refers to projects, because to-dos and tasks are pretty much synonymous. But the language here is somewhat confusing and ambiguous, as you can tell. Maybe it would be better understood if written this way:

In the app, you can easily group to-dos into projects and drag them within and between projects.

  • I agree with you. I have a query. In my opinion, the word "group" simply means "add" here. Am I correct? – curious May 10 at 7:06

    @curious group essentially means “combine”. So you get a project as the result of combining to-dos. You can add to-dos to an existing project. – Mixolydian May 10 at 11:18
