Subject Verb Agreement Correction Exercises

The simple subject of the sentence is “everyone”, so the predicate should be singular and not plural. In this sentence, “each of the students” is the subject, so we need a singular predicate. The only answer that contains a singular predicate for the subject “Each of the students” is “Each of the students was sick last week, so the professor canceled the course.” The subject-verb chord is one of the first things you learn in teaching English: the problem with the sentence it is written is that the subject of the sentence, “every night,” is singular, but the verb “were” is plural. The subject and the verb must match. The correct answer is, “Every night, five nights in a row, it was well below freezing.” The subject of the sentence is “young girl”, a singular noun. Although the verb is next to the plural “student”, a plural, the verb must be a singular verb. In addition, a superlative needs a comparison that must be used properly, making “dark hair” an appropriate answer choice. The verb in the sentence, which is written in the underlined part as “face”, must actually be “face” in singular form. The subject of the sentence is “all”, which is actually a singular form, although the verb is next to “new coaches”. “The new face coaches” is the right answer.

This sentence contains an error in the subject-verb concordance. The theme of the sentence is “reports”, so the verb “a” must be changed to the plural “have” to be consistent with the plural theme “relations”. These words always take the plural form of the verb: these words are irregular plural nouns (nouns that are not made by the addition of -s) and they take the plural form of the verb: In this English lesson, you will learn some more advanced cases of subject-verb concordance that distract many learners. The subject of the sentence is the singular, “the boy”, not the plural “many friends”, which means that the verb must also be singular. In addition, the sentence must keep the same meaning as the boy is partying. “Celebrate” is the right choice of answer. Select the correct form of the verb that corresponds to the subject. 15. Mathematics (is, are) John`s favorite subject, while civics (is, are) Andreas` favorite subject. The underlined part of the sentence contains a verb error with “marche”.

“John and Susan”, while the two singular nouns are a plural and need a plural form instead of the singular “Runs”. “Run to the Finish line” is the right choice of answer. These questions are also singular, although they speak of a group of people. Combine the following sentences with an appropriate form of the verb in parentheses. The problem with the sentence is that the verb “are” is a plural form, but corresponds to “One”, a singular noun, although “boy” comes closest to the verb in the sentence. The correct answer is, “One of the boys will pass.” The verb “anger” is used with the theme “styles”, although the prepositional phrase “of the direction” and the adverb are “often” between the two words. Therefore, the verb must take a plural form to match the subject. “Stile. often angry” is the correct answer.

The underlined sentence has a misuse of the verb “is”, because the subject “player” is a plural form. . . .
