Homework Help: English grammar

Posted by John on Monday, December 10, 2007 at 8:46am.

A beggar with two children ____ taking a rest in the shade. (be)

In the sentence, the subject is 'a beggar'. 'Two children' is not the sucbject of this sentence. Bracket 'with two children'. Then you can notice that you have to use a singular auxiliary verb 'is' in the blank. Don't forget that a singular subject takes a singular verb. Also don't forget that you should ignore the words between the subject and the verb.
