The tenth rule is that collective nouns such as `group`, `herd`, `team` etc. are considered singular when taken as a body, and the verb attached to them is also singular, but if the members of the group are considered individually, they are considered plural and the attached verb is also plural. This rule is that phrases such as many, many, many, many, some of them are considered singular when they relate to quantity or quantity, but are considered plural when referring to the number, so that the verb to be added is also chosen accordingly. Question 7. Fill the voids with the correct form of the verb: (a) It`s Ram who … Guilt. (b) The whole class … I didn`t do it. (c) The jury … differing opinions. (d) Neither you nor I…. I`ve been invited. (e) All the boys in the class …
Absent today. (f) two and two…. Four. Answer: (a) is (b) is (c) (d) on (e) sentence No. 2 is false because the verb `were` is wrongly agreed with the name `apples` near it. It`s a proximity error. The sixth rule says that words as each, neither everyone nor “many a” are followed by a singular verb. 3.
Innumerable substantive: If we use an innumerable noun as the subject of a verb, we use a singular form of the verb: 13. Collective nouns such as group, quantity, herd, regiment, etc. are usually followed by a singular verb: 6. Long Subject: If a clause or a long group of words is the subject, we must ensure that the verb is consistent with the subject: this rule says that the word “none” will adopt a verb according to the meaning of the sentence. Depending on the sentence, it can be singular or pluralistic. 9. Distances, weights, etc.: For distances, weight, amount or sums of money, we use a singular verb, even if the subject is plural: Choose the correct form of the verb from the given options: Question 5. Mohan and Shyam (a) ….

Answer: (a) are (b) the help (c) game (d) is (f) is (h) as the third person unique form of verbs in the simple form of the present is formed by the addition of `s/es` to the root form of the plural of the third person. We can use this rule in the format below. He/ She/ Common Nomen/ Proper Nomen – Verb (basic form) with s/es at the end – subject (optional) the subject-verbal agreement means that the number and person of the subject must match the verb in a given sentence. This concordance of the subject and the verb is called Concord. There are certain rules for this agreement. This rule says that if two or more subjects are linked in a sentence with words such as “or,” “still,” “either____ neither____ yet” and “not only____, but also,” then the verb is chosen according to the subject closest to the verb.
