Rules on Subject-verb agreement
Neither the oranges nor the fruit basket is expensive.
The Rule: When a subject is joined by either, or … neither, nor … the verb must always agree with the nearest placed subject.
There are questions, however, that include collective nouns and quite a few students experience serious troubles when dealing with collective nouns in relation to the subject-verb agreement.
Keep in mind that the number of the sentence’s subject (plural or singular) is never changed by the words that are placed in between the sentence’s subject and verb.
Just look at his sentence: One of the legs of those tables is broken.
This is a “learning” practice test. All questions come with a “clue” or “rule” that is accompanying the question.
When you take enough time and learn how to best apply each ‘rule’ or ‘clue’ to the corresponding question, you will be able to come up with the appropriate answer to all of the questions. You can take this practice test as often as you would like. You can retake this practice test until you manage to apply all of the subject-verb agreement rules in these questions.
