A reader of the sentence Sleuth blog noted that “life, freedom and the pursuit of happiness” (5) is a good example of a single idea that comes with an “and”. Although each part of the compound subject is singular (ranger and camper), together (bound by and), each part becomes a plural structure and must therefore accept a plural abbreviation (see) to match the sentence. Let`s start with a brief review of each component before immersing ourselves in specific examples of assembled topics and verbs. You should almost always use a plural veneer when you have formed a subject composed with “and”. For example: VERB SUBJECT RULE #1 Two or more singular (or plural) subjects connected by a compound pluralistic subject, acting as a plural subject and taking a plural verb (singular + singular = plural). 4. Is not a contraction of no and should only be used with a singular subject.
