"Their father is aged."

Translation:Pater eorum est senilis.

Why not Pater eorum senilis est? I feel like there is no continuum with the word order.

I'm having trouble sorting out the numbers or declension that make "pater eorum" the right answer, and "pater eius" is wrong. Help?

Eorum is used because of "their"
