Spanish term or phrase: la misma
Las llaves foráneas documentan las relaciones entre tablas, y la misma que preserva la integridad de la información.

Does "la misma" refer to "llaves foráneas"?
Erin05 (X)
it
Explanation:
Hard to say because it does not correspond to anything in number, yet in gender it can correspond to either "llaves" or "tablas" (error in original).

Therefore, if you use "it" you remain faithful to the original and preserve the error and ambiguity.
