Homework Help: English grammar

Posted by John on Wednesday, December 12, 2007 at 6:41am.

(with words that indicate portions) If the object of the preposition is singular, use a singular verb. If the object of the preposition is plural, use a plural verb.

1. Some of the pie _____ missing.(be)
2. Some of the pies _____ missing.(be)

Some indicates a portion, so if the object of the preposition of is singular, use a singular verb.

If the object of the preposition 'of' is plural, use a plural verb. In the blank in Sentence 1, write 'is'.
In Sentence 2, change 'be' into 'are' and fill in the blnak with 'are'.
