  1. The simple subject is "roar," while "sound" is the verb. However, since "roar" is singular, "sounds" would be the correct form of the verb.

    Although the arrangement is correct, it could also be "The roar of the lions sounds across the grasslands."

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
