L.A

posted by on .

In each sentence, if the italicized verb does not agree with the subject, circle the verb and write it correct form.

I will capitalize the verb since I don't know how to italicized.

1.Big Ma and Cassie SHARES the same bedroom.

How would I solve this?

  • L.A - ,

    "shares" is in the 3rd person singular present tense form. Therefore, you'd need to have a singular subject to match it.

    But you don't. You have a plural subject: "Big Ma and Cassie" (two people = plural).

  • L.A - ,

    The subject is plural, but SHARES is a singular verb.

    Think of it this way:

    He SHARES . . .
    They SHARE . . .
