How come 'them' come here, I feel it should be you will be able to answer it easily?

How can we say wrong the sentence "If you listen with"?

I can make the sentence "If you listen with your heart" please explain the make the above wrong sentence.

I agree with the above statement. Why not "to answer it" because the singular form question is used and not given as questions?

'If you hear with". Is it correct?

Explanation-Listen is a verb and hearing is a working of a body. D.

So if you hear (working of the body part) with the question.

Them is used as a plural. Then there must be the "Questions" or 'answer it easily'.

'You will be able to answer it (instead of them) easily' is correct as the pronoun to be used for 'question' is 'it'.
