I need to find the error in these sentences. 1. They is both happy. It has a subject and a verb. I'm lost. 2. This morning I watch TV before I drove here. .. need to know are they subject-verb agreement, run- on, verb form and tense or fragment. Please explain so I can understand. Thanks

1. When you have a plural subject, you also need a plural verb form. These are singular forms: I am, you are, he/she/it is. These are plural forms: we are, you are, they are. How will you correct sentence #1?
2. Verb tenses are used to indicate WHEN an action took place. Basically, the tenses are present, past, and future, with some other tenses that are related directly to these. Examples:
present - walk
past - walked
future - will walk
present - write
past - wrote
future - will write
How will you correct #2?

1. Are in replace of is and 2. Watched in past tense instead of watch. I hope I understand now thanks
