Towson Subject Verb Agreement Exercise 5

No Comments »

The rules of the subject verb agreement apply to all personal pronouns, except me and you, which, although SINGULAIRE, require plural forms of verbs. However, the rules of agreement apply to the following helping verbs when used with a main protocol: is-are, were-were, has-have, do-do-do. Expressions of explanatory expressions and between the two have no effect on the verb-subject chord. This sentence uses a compound subject (two subject nouns that are related and related), illustrating a new rule on the subject-verbal agreement. 1. When the different parts of the compound subject are linked by a plural verb and always use. In the example above, the singular verb is true with the singular young subject. SUBJECT-VERBE RULE #1 Two or more singular (or plural) subjects that are linked by a pluralistic composite subject and act as subjects of plural compound and adopt a plural (singular – singular – plural). If the object of the preposition is singular, use a singular verb. Sometimes, however, a preposition expression between the subject and the verb complicates the concordance. Examples: staff are in a meeting. The staff is a unit here.

Staff disagree on the results. In this example, staff act as separate individuals. The sentence would be even better read than: employees are divided on results. 15. Mathematics (is, are) John`s favorite subject, while Civics (is) Andreas the preferred subject. Examples: Salma is the scientist who writes/writes the reports. The word in front of which is scientific is unique. Therefore, use the verb singular writings. He is one of the men who does/does the work. The word before who is a man is plural. Therefore, use the plural verb do. When both and neither subjects are, they always take singular verbs.

A clause that begins with whom, the one or the others, and the coming between the subject and the verb, can cause insequements. So far, we have worked with compound subjects whose elements are either singular or plural If used in the plural form, group nouns mean more than one group. Therefore, a plural verb is used. 2. If the different parts of the compound subject are by or even related, use the verb form (singular or plural) that corresponds to the subject close to the verb. Note: Two or more plural topics that are bound by or not would naturally use a plural verb to accept.
