    Why do you think your answers are right?

  • Grammar (Writeacher)(or Ms. Sue) - ,

    I think my second answer is correct for the first question because the nouns are singular. But I am uncertain about my answer to the second question.

  • Grammar (Writeacher)(or Ms. Sue) - ,

    You're right.

    Both sentences have singular subjects and thus need singular verbs.

    Yes.
