Primary 5 English Grammar: Subject-verb-agreement


There are still some schools which have not had their Primary 5 English SA2 so I thought that the list of Primary 5 English Grammar: subject-verb-agreement below may be helpful in their subject-verb-agreement revision.

The list below are common mistakes students may make when deciding which number (singular and plural) agree(s) with the subject and verb.


1) Neither of/Either of

singular

Examples

  • Either of the students is right.
  • Neither of the doctors has arrived.


2) Neither..nor / Either..or

– depends on the noun closest to the blank

Examples:

  • Neither Jane nor the boys have arrived.
  • Either the tigers or the elephant is making all that noise 

BE CAREFUL

*Neither Jane nor I am going for the show


3) Each / everyone / every / no one

singular

Example

Each of the buildings is surrounded by a high fence.

Every table has a tablecloth


4) All of / Some of / A lot of

In sentences beginning with all of or some of, the true subject follows the verb

Examples

  • All of the equipment has been moved
  • Some of the pies are burnt
  • A lot of pie has disappeared


5) None of

singular

Example

  • None of the elephants is pink
  • None of the girls plays the violin


6) Here/ There

Subject follows the verb

Example

  • There is a pie
  • There are five pies
  • Here is a ladder
  • Here are the ladders
