Thanks for participating in this task! In this HIT, you will read a sentence with the names of people missing. The sentence may have one person (we will call them X), two people (X and Y), or three people (X, Y, and Z). Some sentences may also have "___", in place of common words or phrases. Please select all versions of the sentence which are understandable.

For example: Which of these versions makes sense?

Example 1:

X loses X's ___
X loses Y's ____
 

(We can imagine X losing their own "___", or someone else's (Y's) "____")

 

Example 2:

X clears X's throat
X clears Y's throat
 

(X probably only clears their own throat)

 

Example 3:

X paints X's portrait
X paints Y's portrait
 

(X probably only paints a portrait of someone else)

 

Example 4:

X sends Y on X's way
X sends Y on Y's way
X sends Y on Z's way
 

(X probably only sends Y on Y's own way)

 

Example 4:

X hides X's face in X's hands
X hides X's face in Y's hands
X hides Y's face in Y's hands
X hides Y's face in X's hands
X hides Y's face in Z's hands
 

(We can imagine X only hiding their own face in their own hands, not someone else's face or in someone else's hands)
