7. Names such as citizens, mathematics, dollars, measles and news require singular verbs. This unusual pattern shows what we said earlier: expressions of time, money and distance often adopt a singular verb. Replace two dollars with that, or it would not make sense, so you know that the verb must be plural. Money, time and measurements can be plural or singular. If the focus of your game is a total sum, use a singular verb. If your game is focused on multiple units, use a plural verb. And if the money was spent on a single object, I would rather use a singular verb. Use a singular verb with sums of money or periods, i.e. the verb does not correspond to the head word of the subject of the noun sentence, but to the single sum of money or time: rule 1.

Writers, lecturers, readers and listeners may regret the all-too-frequent error in the following sentence: Rule 7. Use a singular verb with distances, periods, sums of money, etc., if they are considered a unit. Article 8. With words that give pieces – z.B a lot, a majority, some, all — that were given above in this section, Rule 1 is reversed, and we are directed after the no bite after that of. If the name is singular, use a singular verb. If it`s plural, use a plural verb. The rule of thumb. A singular subject (she, Bill, auto) takes a singular verb (is, goes, shines), while a plural subject takes on a plural verb.
Article 6. In sentences that begin here or there, the real subject follows the verb. In today`s Grammar Everyday, we will investigate unusual cases of what we call the verb-subject agreement. We will use the standard to highlight themes once and verbs twice. 8. Names such as scissors, pliers, pants and scissors require plural verbs. (There are two parts of these things.) If the majority/minority means a certain percentage, you can use either a singular or a plural verb: in the first sentence, the theme is a dollar.
