Q

Even though Kenny was a great roommate, John hated ________ in the shower.

A. his to sing

B. him singing

C. his singing

D. his to be singing

E. him being singing

A

Answer: C. his singing

Option B and option C both make sense and this can be seen in statements like “I hate his cooking” and “I hate him cooking.” Option C however fits more clearly in the statement as it describes John’s hatred for Kenny’s singing in the bathroom. He might prefer him singing in the kitchen or any other place but he dislikes his singing in the bathroom.
