Question description

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

lack of subject-verb agreement problem: An indefinite pronoun as the

subject

     Solutions:

     a.  Make the verb agree with the subject that is closer to it.

     b.  Determine whether the indefinite pronoun is singular or plural

         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

         verb. Make the verb agree with the subject.
