I found a teacher mix used third person singular and pronoun.
A simpler way to understand this is basically to receive an action. Okay? So when somebody gets punished, it means that someone else punishes them. It is used as a passive, but many people use "get" instead of "be".
where somebody obviously refers to a single person, so the use of "gets" makes sense, and then that teacher used a plural pronoun "them", does not match the former part. I guess that's because the teacher was trying to use a easier way to say he or she.
Is my understanding right? Is there a better solution?
