Example Question #1 : Subject Verb And Pronoun Antecedent Agreement: Ccss.Ela Literacy.L.3.1.F

Select the correct verb to fill in the blank in the sentence below. 

Zoe and Maggie __________ to school each day. 

Possible Answers:

walks

walk

walkes 

walkies

Correct answer:

walk

Explanation:

Subjects and verbs need to agree.

There are two types of subjects: singular and plural. Singular subjects refer to one noun. Plural subjects refer to more than one noun. 

Singular subjects must be paired with singular verbs. Singular verbs end in "s", "es" or "ies". 

Plural subjects must be paired with plural verbs. Plural verbs do not end in "s", "es", or "ies". 

Zoe and Maggie are two nouns, so this is a plural subject, meaning we need to pick a plural verb. "Walk" is the plural verb.
