I have to circle the simple subject,find the verb,decide if its right and if not I have to put the correct verb in its place. (subject-verb agreement) Across the grasslands sound the roar of the lions.

  • english -

    The simple subject is "roar," while "sound" is the verb. However, since "roar" is singular, "sounds" would be the correct form of the verb.

    Although the arrangement is correct, it could also be "The roar of the lions sounds across the grasslands."

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
