Assunto:  Himself/herself??
 
Mensagem:  If I were writing the sentence myself, I'd probably have chosen "himself" or "herself", or even "himself/herself". However, some time ago, someone in this forum told me that, when you don't know the gender of the person, you are supposed to use "itself". Therefore, I'd choose letter "e". However, I wasn't able to check this information anywhere, so this may not be accurate.
