What is the rationale for Subject-verb agreement ;Some athletes have taken drug tests to prove they are not on steroids

  • Comprehensive grammar -

    Main clause:
    subject = athletes (plural)
    verb = have taken ("have" is the plural form needed here to agree with subject; singular form would be "has")

    Subordinate clause:
    subject = they (plural; refers to "athletes")
    verb = are (plural form)
