These rules of agreement do not apply to verbs used in the simple past without helping verbs. So far, we have worked with compound subjects whose elements are either singular or plural 1. If the different parts of the compound subject are connected by and, always a plural adverb. Like prepositionphrase, the who/clause never contains the subject. 3. Look for the subject`s real sentence and choose a verb that matches him. In this case, I use an adverb clause that is separated by commas and therefore only a subject (reconciliation). What if I wanted to build a sentence with two or more subjects that are both participants in attendance? For example: “Looking at the (sth) problem of this or that perspective, and also focusing on the multidimensional character (whatever it is) seems to be of the utmost importance here.” (I know it`s not most… A striking example, perhaps, but I hope you know where I`m going anyway.) Personally, I would use “seems,” because the second topic (or clause, perhaps) is a bit regressive – it just adds additional information. In addition, it is separated by commas. Would that sentence be correct? What subject should I use if there are no commas in the sentence? 1. If the subject of a sentence is composed of two or more subtants or pronouns bound by a plural verb and use it. 11.
Expressions such as .B. with, including, accompanied by, add or not change the number of theme. If the subject is singular, the verb is also. Hi The sentence has two themes, there are (and) between them. Best What is if one part of the composite subject is the singular and the other plural? 1. Group amendments can be considered a unit and therefore take on a singular verb. Although you are probably already familiar with the basic thematic-verbal agreements, this chapter begins with a quick review of the basic agreement rules. On the other hand, if we actually refer to the people in the group, we look at the plural substantive.
In this case, we use a plural verb. If there are two different topics, they are used. If both elements form a theme, this is used. Is that what you mean? In this case, you have two different themes (and plural) without commas. 8. Names such as scissors, pliers, pants and scissors require plural verbs. (There are two parts of these things.) in #7 I don`t work because it`s an object pronoun and you need a subject pronoun for the verb `is`. That`s the only topic. As it is separated from the commas (,), it is not part of the subject. In this case, only the teacher is the subject, so the verb `is`.
Hello Adam, I like to watch your classes. I watch them several times. In the quiz, I have a confusion about Q3. (The teacher_______ do a laboratory experiment).
