Keep teaching us Two singular nouns, which are connected by ET, make a plural subject. The main name of the phrase is “The Chief”. The prepositional phrase “the student” modifies the subject. The complete subject is the head of the students. Is the subject singular or plural? It is singular (one) and the third person (the leader = she / him). Thanks it was very useful I liked the exercises These words are irregular plural nouns (nouns that are not made by adding -s) and they take the plural form of the verb: 3. Everyone / Person / Person / etc are singular subjects. The subject-verb agreement is one of the first things you learn in English class: look at each sentence and think about the concordance between the subject and the verb. .
