Are all the expressions above correct? which expressions are commonly used?

  • English Expressions -

    Only the second and fourth sentences are correct. The word "eating" (a gerund) is the subject and is singular, so all those sentences with "are" for the verb are incorrect.

  • English Expressions -

    Correction of sorts: "eating" is the subject of its own clause, not the main subject of the entire sentence.


  • English Expressions -

    OK. Thank you. What about the form of food? Do we have to use 'food' or 'foods'?

  • English Expressions -

    "food" is fine -- no need to pluralize it.
