Subject Verb Agreement Class 9 Pdf

If we use a single name as the subject of a verb, we use a singular verb. Plural names take a plural verb: rule 1. A singular subject takes the verb in the singular and a plural subject takes the verb in the plural. Note: All English verbs are plural, we make them s or verb. Examples: (i) Naina walks every day. (ii) Workers are on strike. Choose the correct form of the verbs that are shown in parentheses in the following sentences: Rule 12. Phrases like:`many`, `plenty of`, `most of` are used in the singular when they relate to quantity or quantity, but they take plural verbs if they refer to number. Example: 12.

Thus, if the subject is singular number, the first person, the verb must be singular number. If the subject has the plural number, the third person, the verb must be plural number.
