This is about subject-verb agreement.

How should I re-write this sentence:
"Either the interviewer or the committee members usually begins by asking simple questions about your background."

"Each of the instructors are attending the conference next weekend."

How should I write these two sentences.

  • grammar -

    The first sentence is correct; the second is wrong.

    Either and each are both singular subjects and take singular verbs.
