Thank you

  1. Ms. Sue

    2, 4 are wrong.

    The rule is that if two singular subjects are joined by or or nor, the verb must also be singular.

  2. Patrick

    So then the answer for number two is as follows:

    2. Either Bill or John will bring a sample of (his, their) own work.
    Circle his

    4. Neither Mary nor Susan said (she, they) would be there.
    Circle the word she

    Please let me know if the two of the above are correct?

  3. Ms. Sue

    Yes, they are both right, now.

  4. Patrick

    Thank you for checking these again.

  5. Ms. Sue

    You're welcome, Patrick.
