This sentence uses a compound subject (two subject nouns that are assembled or assembled). Each part of the compound subject (Ranger, Camper) is unique. Even if the two words work together as a subject (linked by or), the subject is always singular (Ranger or Camper), because a CHOICE is implied. SUBJECT-VERBE RULE #2 Two or more singular subjects that are linked by or (or not) as a single compound subject and therefore use a single verb to accept. 3. Group substitutions can be administered to plural forms to mean two or more units and thus take a plural verb. SUBJECT-VERBE RULE #1 Two or more singular (or plural) subjects that are linked by a pluralistic composite subject and act as subjects of plural compound and adopt a plural (singular – singular – plural). However, there are some guidelines for deciding which form of verb (singular or plural) should be used with one of these names as a subject in a sentence. These rules of agreement do not apply to verbs used in the simple past without helping verbs. In contemporary form, nouns and verbs form plural in opposite ways: substantive ADD to s to singular form; Be REMOVE verb the s of the singular form. As in this example, the subject, the book, is singular, the verb must also be singular.
When used in the plural, group substitutions mean more than one group. Therefore, a plural verb is used. However, if the subject is plural, the verb must be plural. In the example above, the singular verb is true with the singular young subject. On the other hand, if we actually refer to the people in the group, we look at the plural substantive. In this case, we use a plural verb. 1. Group amendments can be considered a unit and therefore take on a singular verb. However, the rules of agreement apply to the following helping verbs when used with a main protocol: is-are, were-were, has-have, do-do-do. 2. If the different parts of the compound subject are by or even related, use the verb form (singular or plural) that corresponds to the subject close to the verb.
Note: Two or more plural topics that are bound by or not would naturally use a plural verb to accept. In correct English, both spoken and written, a subject and a verb must agree. Just as a subject can be plural or singular, a verb or a predicate can also be plural or singular. If the subject is plural, the verb must also be plural, and so must nouns to nouns and individual subjects; The verb must be singular.
