Homework Help: English Grammar

Posted by John on Saturday, December 8, 2007 at 1:48am.

1. Ignore the words in-between because they do not affect agreement.

2. If the two subjects are joined by ˇ°andˇ±, the verb will be plural in most situations except that when the joined subjects are preceded by ˇ°every,ˇ± ˇ°no,ˇ± or ˇ°nothingˇ±.

3. Use a singular verb with sums of money or periods of time.

Ex) Ten dollars _____ a high price to pay. (be)

In this sentence, 'ten dollars' is used as a sum of money. So you have to use the singular verb 'is'.

Are the explanation above correct? Would you check punctuation marks and the explanations?
