In this example, politics is only a theme; Therefore, the sentence has a singular verb. 6. If two subjects are bound by „and,” they generally need a plural form. Sometimes names take strange forms and can fool us to think that they are plural if they are truly singular and vice versa. You`ll find more help in the section on plural forms of nouns and in the section on collective nouns. Words such as glasses, pants, pliers and scissors are considered plural (and require plural verbs), unless they are followed by the pair of sentences (in this case, the pair of words becomes subject). Good morning, Alex. I found this page two days ago. I`ve been so impressed with your classes. That`s what drove me to learn more English. I haven`t studied too much with you. I think maybe you talked about everyone…
Excuse me, I don`t think so… It`s just that I`m wondering. Above sentence „All require singular verbs” and the title of the song „All I want for Christmas is you” … When should I use `all` singular verb or `pluralistic verb`? Thank you very much!!!! 6.

I was confused with the word does.
I have a question. What is the verb used if the sentence says: „Every boy and every girl must take the test. Does he have or have it? I`m confused. Do I stick to the word „EACH”? Please enlighten me.

Is not a contraction of not and should only be used with a singular theme.
Don`t is a contraction of no and should only be used with a plural theme. The exception to this rule occurs in the case of the first person and the second person Pronouns I and you. For these pronouns, contraction should not be used. Note: In this example, the object of the sentence is even; That is why the verb must agree. (Because scissors are the subject of the preposition, scissors have no influence on the verb number.) Key: subject – yellow, bold; verb – green, underlining 12. Use a singular verb with each and many of a `thank you and I have the question: when someone, someone, someone, someone, someone, someone, someone, someone, everyone please a unifying verb `is`, `were`, `were`, `seems` and others` corresponds to his subject, not his supplement. 5. Don`t be misled by a sentence that comes between the subject and the verb.
The verb is in agreement with the subject, not with a name or pronoun in the expression. This manual gives you several guidelines to help your subjects and verbs to accept.
