In English grammar, there is one rule that people seem to forget. The subject-verb agreement rule is crucial to a sentence's meaning, and it can be applied in any sentence.
The subject- verb agreement rule is when the subject of a sentence agrees with the verb. So if you were to say "My mother works at Microsoft" the verb would be "works," and my would be "my mother." However, if you were to say "I work at Microsoft," the verb would be "work," and I would be "I."

Here are some examples of subject-verb agreement with singular indefinite pronouns:

  • Each gets a trophy for playing.
  • Somebody will pay for this.
  • Anybody is more fun than you.
  • Something feels very wrong here.
  • Everybody enjoys a good book.
  • Nothing has been determined as of yet.

The relationship between the sentence's subject and predicate is referred to as subject-verb agreement. In two ways, subjects and verbs must always agree: tense and number. The number, or whether the subject and verb are solitary or plural, is the focus of this essay.

Verbs must agree in number (singular or plural) and person with their subjects (first, second, or third). To check for agreement, simply locate the verb and inquire as to who or what is performing the action of that word.

A singular subject (she, Bill, automobile) uses a singular verb (is, goes, shines), while a plural subject uses a plural verb (is, goes, shines). The list of objects is/are on the desk, for example.
