Each student should save his or her questions until the end.
每次遇到这种情况都要说 his or her，真心觉得有点儿麻烦。

Currently, however, many writers find the use of the generic he or his to rename indefinite antecedents limiting or offensive. Substituting he or she in its place is the logical thing to do if it works. But it often doesn't work, if only because repetition makes it sound boring or silly. Consider these strategies to avoid an awkward overuse of he or she or an unintentional emphasis on the masculine:
Use the plural rather than the singular. The writer must address his readers' concerns. Writers must address their readers' concerns.
Eliminate the pronoun altogether. The writer must address his readers' concerns. The writer must address readers' concerns.
Substitute the second person for the third person. The writer must address his readers' concerns. As a writer, you must address your readers' concerns. No one need fear to use he if common sense supports it. If you think she is a handy substitute for he, try it and see what happens. Alternatively, put all controversial nouns in the plural and avoid the choice of sex altogether, although you may find your prose sounding general and diffuse as a result.
