Subject-Verb Agreement

Subject-verb agreement means that a singular subject connects with a singular verb or that a plural subject connects with a plural verb.

  • My bicycle is in the garden.
    (singular subject/bicycle – singular verb/is)
  • My toys are in the bedroom.
    (plural subject/toys – plural verb/are)

Compare with this example:

  • My bag of bananas are on the table.
    (singular subject/bag – plural verb/are)
