Subject Verb Agreement Correction Exercises

Choose the correct form of the verb that matches the theme. These words are irregular plural names (names that are not formed by adding -s) and they adopt the plural form of the verb: The problem with the sentence as 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 for five straight nights was well below freezing.” This sentence contains an error in the subject verb agreement. The theme of the sentence is “reports,” so the verb “a” must be changed to “have” in the plural to approve the plural theme “reports.” The verb “annoy” is used with the theme of “styles,” although the prepositional expression “leadership” and the adverb “frequently” are found between the two words. Therefore, the verb must adopt a plural form to match the subject. “Styles… “often angry” is the right answer form. The problem with the phrase is that the verb “are” is a plural form, but is intersected with “One,” a singular name, although “boys” is the next word on the verb in the sentence.

The correct answer is: “One of them comes here.” These words always have the plural form of the verb: these subjects are also singular, although they speak of a group of people. The theme of the phrase is singular, “the boy,” and not the plural “many friends,” which means that the verb must also be singular. In addition, the sentence must keep the same meaning as it makes the celebration young. “Celebrating” is the right choice of response. The underlined expression has a misuse of the verb “is” because the theme “player” is a plural form. The verb must also be plural. “There are no players” is the correct answer- The simple theme of the sentence is “Everyone,” so the predicate should be singular instead of the plural. In this sentence, “Each student” is the theme, so we need a unique predicate. The only choice of answers that contains a single predicate for the subject “Each of the students” is “Each of the students was sick last week, so the professor canceled the conference.” The verb in the sentence, written in the section emphasized as “face,” must in fact be in the singular form of “faces.” The theme of the phrase is “everyone,” which is actually a singular form, although the verb sits next to “new coaches.” “The new coach faces” is the right answer. The theme of the phrase is “the youngest girl,” a single nostantiv. Although the verb is next to the plural “students,” a verb, the verb must be a singular verb. In addition, a superlative must need a comparison to be used properly, so that “dark hair” is the right answer choice.

Combine the following sentences with an appropriate form of verb indicated in parentheses. The underlined part of the sentence contains a verb error with “runs.” “John and Susan,” while the two singular nouns are together a plural and require a plural form instead of singular “races.” “Run to the finish line” is the right answer choice. The subject-verb agreement is one of the first things you learn in English lessons: in this English lesson, you learn some more advanced cases of subject-verb tuning that confuse many learners. 15.
