Hi, Sentence A was part of the report that I emailed to my manager. But after reviewing it, he changed the word THOSE to THESE. Why is the word THOSE more appropriate to use than THESE. Thanks.
SENTENCE A: He also said that although they work hard to realize their mission to direct, lead, and coordinate the country’s scientific and technological efforts to maximize economic and social benefits, they cannot do THOSE without the collaboration of everyone.

SENTENCE A: He also said that although they work hard to realize their mission to direct, lead, and coordinate the country’s scientific and technological efforts to maximize economic and social benefits, they cannot do THESE THINGS without the collaboration of everyone.

THESE is better here than THOSE because it refers to actions that are explained in the same sentence.
