1. One maple and three elms (stand, stands) in the yard.

stands

  • English -

    You have four trees.

    Would you say?

    they stand
    or
    they stands

  • English -

    Stand sounds better but in my directions it tells me subjects joined by and generally take a plural verb. Can you please explain?

  • English -

    Stand is the plural verb.

    Other examples:

    They jump.
    They know.
    They study.
    They write.

  • English -

    They stand. They stands does not sound right and stand is the plural verb.

    Or maybe the word would be stood depending on what sentence you're using it in.
    Explain please?
