Agreement Of The Predicate With The Subject Test

The following rules of the predicate`s conformity with theme 3.25 When the subject is expressed by a group of words that designate arithmetic calculations (addition, do not rely on the order of words to help you identify the subject. The verb BE has more forms for conformity with the subject in person and in numbers: I am; Whether he/she is; We/they are; my brother is; My brothers are; I/he/she/it was; we/they were; my brother was; They were my brothers. Imagine (V) — think with images in the spirit of Verb Accord for him, she, it is marked with a final -s in the shape of present. See irregular forms below. The general rule of the subject-verb agreement in the number is this: the subject in the singular requires the verb in the singular. The subject in the plural requires the verb in the plural. The verb corresponds in number with the subject, not with the name in the predicate, which is according to the verb, and not with the name in the attribute sentence that is between the subject and the verb. First you`ll find the theme, then make the verb match with the theme. Compare: their first task is to find the object of the sentence. To do this, you will find the verb, the word of action or the word of state, and then decide who or what we are talking about. So ask yourself: is the subject the first person (me/us), the second person (she) or the third person (him, she, she/she)? Is the subject singular or plural? Once you have answered these questions, you will know what form the verb should take. Singular subjects take singular verbs, and plural subjects take plural verbs. 3.10 If two words are linked in a subject composed by preposition “with” and refer to possessing something, the predicate corresponds to its first member.

3.1 If the subject consists of two words that mean two different things or people and are bound by “and,” the predicate corresponds to the plural subject. z.B.: A man with his dog comes to our house every day. Part of the daily discourse on how we use the verb with a theme. In the English language, the predicate corresponds to the personal theme and number. The subject in the main part of a note: If by two clauses, the plural predicate is used. If the compound subject is according to the predicate expressed by “it exists; there are” (there was; there was, etc.), the verb is generally correct in the number with the next topic.
