Subject Verb Agreement Rules For Some
In these constructions (called expansionist constructions), the subject follows the verb, but always determines the number of the verb. What if one part of the compound subject is singular and the other is plural? RULE1: The subject and verb must correspond in number: both must be singular, or both must be plural. Example: The car belongs to my brother. (SINGULAR) They also play football. (PLURAL) Nouns connected by the conjunction and in the subject work as a plural subject and adopt a plural verb. Rule 7. Use a singular verb with distances, periods, sums of money, etc., if you are considered a unit. This sentence refers to the individual efforts of each crew member. The Gregg Reference Manual offers excellent explanations of subject-verb concordance (section 10:1001). .
