Hi there,

Which is correct:

Your kindness, patience, encouragement and dedication *is* evident.

-or-

Your kindness, patience, encouragement and dedication *are* evident.

Thank you!
Michelle

    The second one is correct. You have a plural subject (4 items, to be exact) so a plural verb form is needed.

    It'd also be good if you put a comma after "encouragement."

    You're welcome!
