Rule 1: A topic will stand in front of a sentence that will begin with. This is a key rule for understanding topics. The word of the is the culprit of many errors, perhaps most of the errors of subject and verb. Rule 5b: Parentheses are not part of the topic. For example, the verb comes from Latin, which means a word. This is called because it is the most important word in a sentence. A verb is a word that is used to say something about a person or thing. Question 1. Choose the correct form of the verb that corresponds to the subject. 15. Mathematics (is, are) John`s favorite subject, while civics (is, are) Andreas` favorite subject. Question 2. Choose the right verb and fill in the gaps: Rule 2: Two singular subjects that are connected by or, or, or, or, or not, ni/or a singular verb.
Examples A. Instructions: Use the verb form in parentheses, which corresponds to the subject in number. Example: Question 9. (i) Mathematics is an interesting subject (ii) mathematics would be an interesting subject (iii) mathematics is an interesting subject (iv) mathematics is/have been an interesting subject rule 3: The verb in an or, or, or not/or sentence, corresponds to the noun or pronoun closest to it.

For other irregular verbs, the simple past tense is the same as the past party (but different from the infinitive). For example, say — tell: Can you tell me about Sharan? She told me to come back the next day. (simply past) Did you talk to someone about changing schools? (Party past – perfect present) I was told to come back the next day (past participation – passively) question 8. (a) If the subject is third, person singular, most English verbs end on -s or -il, but there is no -s or -il on the plural of the third person. He goes to school. They go to school. Sita goes to school. Sita and Rama go to school. You eat a mango. Ram eats a mango. Rule 5a: Sometimes the subject is separated from the verb by words as with, as well as, in addition, not, etc. These words and phrases are not part of the topic.
Ignore them and use a singular if the subject is singular. Examples If the subject is a pronoun, the verb must also correspond personally. English pronouns fall into three categories: first person, second person and third person. The basic rule of subject-verb concord is that a singular subject (the acting of an action spoken of in the sentence) always takes a singular verb (the plot executed in the sentence), while a plural will always takes on a plural. . . .
