Warning: phrases like “in addition to,” “like,” and “with” don`t mean the same as “and.” When inserted between the subject and the verb, these sentences do not change the subject number. Only the simple subjectThe verb should coincide with its simple subject – not with the description or explanation of the subject; Ignore descriptions and explanations. If the simple subject is singular, use the singular form of the verb. If the simple subject is plural, use the plural form of the verb. (For more information on topics, see the TIP sheet Parts of sentences: Subject, Verb, Object, Complement. For guidance on using prepositional alhrases to identify the subject, see Prepositions and prepositional alhrases.) These sentences are called pseudo-column sentences. A pseudo-divided theorem consists of a subject made by an independent parent which clause followed by BE and a subject complement. A pseudo-deviation theorem thematizes an integer clause in which a component – provisionally represented by what – must be specified (focused) by the subject complement. Verb before subjectIn questions, the subject follows the verb, but the subject always determines the person and the number of the verb: being able to find the right subject and the right verb will help you correct errors in the subject-verb correspondence. Rule 6. In sentences that begin with here or there, the real subject follows the verb. Rule 4. As a general rule, use a plural association with two or more subjects if they are through and connected.
Note: In this example, the subject of the sentence is the pair; therefore, the verb must correspond to it.
