If you give the characters in your scenarios names, pronouns become easier to choose.

To use your example:

Karen is the sponsor of your project. She's recently asked you to review some information posted at her website. What information will you need to log into her site?

"Karen" is generally a woman's name, so the pronouns are "she" and "her." If you named the character "Jim" instead, you'd use "he" and "his." If Karen and Jim were the sponsors, you'd use "they" and "their." 

Cheers!
