11. Expressions such as .B. with, including, accompanied by, add or not change the number of theme. If the subject is singular, the verb is also. Article 7. Use a singular verb with distances, periods, sums of money, etc., if they are considered a unit. 4. For compound subjects bound by or/nor, the verb corresponds to the subject that comes close to it. Pronouns are neither singular nor singular and require singular verbs, even if they seem, in a certain sense, to refer to two things. So far, we have examined topics that can create confusion of the subject-verb agreement: composite themes, group subjects, singular plural topics of meaning, and unspecified topics.
What form of verb to use in this case? Should the verb be singular to accept in one word? Or should the verb be plural to accept the other? Article 9. For collective subtantives such as the group, the jury, the family, the public, the population, the verb can be singular or plural, depending on the author`s intention.
