In this activity, you will practise how to correctly use suitable subject-verb agreement within your sentences.
The subject in a sentence refers to the thing or person that is carrying out an action.
The object in a sentence does not carry out the action but is the thing or person that is involved.
The dog ate a delicious, juicy bone.
'The dog' is the subject in the sentence.
'A delicious, juicy bone' is the object.
In the English language, a singular subject will need a singular verb.
A dog loves a ball.
Therefore, plural subjects need plural verbs.
Dogs love a ball.
Some pronouns are always singular so always need a singular verb.
Everyone is going to the cinema.
But pronouns like 'all' or 'some' can actually be plural or singular.
They are plural if the person or thing referred to by the pronoun can be counted.
Some girls, all adults
Or singular, if the person or thing referred to by the pronoun cannot be counted and is seen as a singular.
Some butter, all the sugar
The pronoun 'none' is multi-functional.
It can be used as singular or plural.
This was a huge amount of information to take it. It's now over to you to practise using these rules yourself.
