  • English -

    5, 6, 7, 8 are wrong.

  • English -

    I get how I got 6 and 7 wrong but I don't get 5 and 8.
    Isn't milk singular so the verb has to be singular? And for number 8 isn't sheep singular so the verb has to be singular?
    I thought goes and moves were singular because it ended with an s, so I picked that answer.

  • English -

    Eggs and milk are plural. Two subjects joined by "and" is always plural
    They goes?
    They go?

    The word, sheep, in this sentence is plural.
