Example: (c) When a sentence begins with “there”, the verb corresponds to the actual subject that comes after the verb. This is John. There are fifty students in my class. Some nouns that are in the plural form, but the singular in the sense, take on a singular verb. Example: The title of a book, play, history, musical composition and the name of a country, although the plural in the form is a singular verb. Example: if two or more singular subjects are related to each other by “and”, the plural abraquement is used. Example: two or more singular subjects that are connected by “or”, “ni”, “ni” or “ni” take a verb in the singular. Example: b) Neena, my classmate and friend, goes abroad. If the subject of the verb is a relative pronoun, care should be taken to ensure that the verb in number and person corresponds to the precursor of the parent. Example: If the subjects related by `or`, `nor`, are different, the verb must be plural and the plural subject must be placed next to the verb.
