subject and verb agreement

subject and verb agreement

A sentence’s subject must agree in number with its verb. Thus, singular
verbs should be used for singular subjects, and plural verbs should be used
for plural subjects.
➲ In each of these sentences, the singular subject is underlined, and the
singular verb is italicized.
Sam holds the school record for the mile run.
This woman knows that subject very well.
Kara performs with the local dance company.
➲ In each of these sentences, the plural subject is underlined, and the
plural verb is italicized.
These two seniors hold the record for the mile run.
These women know that subject very well.
They perform with the local dance company.

    The Narmada also called the Rewa, is a river in central India and the fifth longest river in the Indian subcontinent. It is the third longest river that flows entirely within India, after the Godavari and the Krishna. It is also known as Life Line of Madhya Pradesh for its huge contribution to the state of Madhya Pradesh in many ways. It forms the traditional boundary between North India and South India and flows westwards over a length of 1,312 km (815.2 mi) before draining through the Gulf of Khambhat into the Arabian Sea, 30 km (18.6 mi) west of Bharuch city of Gujarat. It is one of only three major rivers in peninsular India that run from east to west (longest west flowing river), along with the Tapti River and the Mahi River. It is the one of the rivers in India that flows in a rift valley, flowing west between the Satpura and Vindhya ranges. The other rivers which flows through rift valley include Damodar River in Chota Nagpur Plateau and Tapti. The Tapti River and Mahi River also flow through rift valleys, but between different ranges.
