I recently applied to my county sheriff for a document showing my lack of felony convictions and “good moral character.” No kidding, that’s what the certificate says.
The document has changed since I last got one. It now includes a sentence with the phrase…”his, her or their…” I guess they’re just trying to cover all their gender-bending possibilities.

It’s okay! Everyone slips up from time to time. The best thing to do if you use the wrong pronoun for someone is to say something right away, like “Sorry, I meant she.” If you realize your mistake after the fact, apologize in private and move on.
I have no earthly clue what this chart is supposed to say except, this is a strange, new world.
