Question description

Match the lack of subject-verb agreement solution to the correct

lack of subject-verb agreement problem: A compound subject that is

preceded by many a, every, or each

     Solutions:

         and make the verb agree.

     c.  If the parts of the compound subject do not belong to one unit

         or they refer to different people or things, use a plural

         verb, or if the parts of the compound subject belong to one

         unit or if both parts refer to the same person or thing, use a

         singular verb.              

     d.  Use a singular verb when many a, each, or every precedes a

         compound subject.

     e.  Ignore an intervening expression between a subject and its
