Ex. Gold and silver are precious metals.

His father and Mr. Pradhan are two friends.

3. The sentence beginning with dummy subject ‘there’ the verb agrees with logical or real subject.

4. The sentence beginning with ‘it’ is always singular.
Ex. It is working

Ex. Five lakh rupees is not a small amount.

One hundred and fifty kilos of rice is enough for a month

7. When two or more nouns are combined together to denote a single idea to the same person or thing,the verb used is always singular.

Ex. Time and Tide waits for none
Honour and Glory is his reward

8. Most of the time a collective noun takes a singular verb. but if they refer to separate individuals or things or nouns,we use plural verb.

Our family is rich(Single Unit)

Our family are early risers (Individual members  in the family)

Other similar nouns are committee jury enemy,public,government,audience,community,class,team,flock

9. Some nouns are congenitally singular and take singular verbs .

Ex. Clothing Food Furniture ,Stationary etc.

The furniture is very costly

Some nouns are congenitally plural and take plural verbs .

People, Police ,Poultry Sheep and Deer etc.

  • The verb depend upon the number of persons of the head noun of the subject.

Ex. One of my Relatives lives in England.

11. Either (of) , neither (of), none (of), each,everyone  many a, each of, one of must be followed by  a singular verb.

For example: Neither of the hill stations has got a guest house

The United states is one of the richest countries in the world.

Mumps is caused due to lack of vitamins

13. To indicate that individuals talked about are two different persons, we use the definite article the before each person.

  • If ‘and‘ connects two titles or designations of the same person, the verb is singular.
  • If the persons referred to are separate, and each title and designation is used with ‘the’ then the  verb is plural.

For example:

The Prime Minister and ex-officio Chairman of Planning Commission has declared a mammoth programme on rehabilitation. (Both are same persons)

The Secretary and the head master have met the student.(Both are different)

14. When the subject begins with a fraction, the verb agrees with the noun that following any fraction.

For example:
Two-thirds of the rice has been damaged
Two-third  of the people are literate.

Phrases like a good deal of, a lot of, plenty of,most of, some of, a great deal of take the verb according to the noun that follows these phrases.
A great deal of money is spent …
Most of the members were absent.
