    What about watch, the plural verb instead of watches, the singular verb?

  • English Expressions -

    No, you'd use the singular verb there since you don't know yet whether the answer will be singular or plural.

    Who watches TV the least? (singular verb)
    People in their forties do. (plural verb)
