SPECIAL PROBLEMS IN AGREEMENT -3

The words “I” and “you” although
“I” stands for a single person, the only singular verb forms used with “I” are
“am” AM and WAS.
          Example:  I am tired
                             I am going home now
                             I was hungry
Usually, “I” takes the plural
form of the verb:
          Example:  I have two
sisters
                             I have written two letters
                             I
promise
The pronoun “you” always
takes a plural verb:
        Example:  You are my
best friend
                            You
are playing Piano
                             Were you upset?
PRONOUNS AND SUBJECTS: 

The pronouns below are singular and must be
used with singular verbs.
          Each           either          everyone             anyone                no
one
          One            neither       everybody           anybody              nobody
Do not be confused when a
prepositional phrase follows one of these pronouns.  The verb must still agree with the pronoun
subject.
          Example:   Neither of
these watches works
Exercise:    Choose the right verb
1.    
(Was, Were) you
praying in the church this morning?
2.    
(Has, Have) you
heard the latest news?
3.    
Each of these
pants (costs, cost) 100 pounds.
