Is anything wrong with the suject- verb agreement in this sentence.
The rod and scepter signifies the power of the king.

I am trying to figure out if signifies is suppose to be signified or is nothing wrong with it.

  • English -

    Yes, the problem is ....the subject is plural.... rod and scepter.

    The verb is singular ...... signifies

    You need to make the verb plural also.
