Practice Exercises: Subject and Verb Agreement I

Subjects and verbs in a sentence must AGREE with one another in number. This only means that if a subject is singular, its verb must also be singular; if a subject is plural, its verb must also be plural. Being able to find the right subject and verb will help you correct errors of subject-verb agreement. Knowing the rules of subject and verb agreement will help you deal with Verbal Ability questions in the Civil Service Exam, and in other aptitude tests.

About the Author

I'm a Journalism graduate of the University of the Philippines - Diliman and I'm currently taking up units in Professional Education courses. I have written for various blogs, websites, and magazines in the past. Right now, I work as a freelance eBook writer and a mobile app developer.

While I was managing a fledgling online business and being a full-time mom to my four kids - Yana, Yshi, Yza and Vincent Jr., I took the Career Service Examination - Pencil and Paper Test - Professional Level (CSE-PPT- Prof) for the first time in December 2015. I passed and I got lucky enough to be among the Top 10 examinees in my batch, 3rd in the National Capital Region.
