5. Don`t be misled by a sentence that comes between the subject and the verb. The verb is in agreement with the subject, not with a name or pronoun in the expression. The general rule of the subject-verb agreement in the number is this: the subject in the singular requires the verb in the singular. The subject in the plural requires the verb in the plural. Some names that end in s/il are plural in form, but singularly in the sense, for example news, mathematics, physics, measles. These names require a singular verb. «accompanied by: likewise; of the whole, including the whole. Они не принимаются во внимание при выборе формы ед.
или мн. числа глагола для согласования с подлежащим. 9. In sentences beginning with «there is» or «there,» the subject follows the verb. As «he» is not the subject, the verb corresponds to the following. Infinite pronouns as one, everyone, everything, everything, nothing, no one, no one, anyone, someone, someone, another, etc. are treated as singular. (in formal English)  In sentences beginning with expletives as here and there, the very subject that follows the verb determines the form of the verb: the predicate corresponds in number to the subject, and if it is copulatory (i.e. it consists of a noun/adjective and a unifying verb), the two parts in number correspond to the subject.
For example: A k-nyvek ardek voltak «Books were interesting» (a: this: «k-nyv»: book, «erkes»: interesting, «voltak»: were): the plural is marked on the theme as well as on the addjectival and the copulatory part of the predicate. Case agreement is not an essential feature of English (only personal pronouns and pronouns with a case mark). A match between these pronouns can sometimes be observed: Note also the chord that is shown by to be even in the subjunctive mind. If the compound subject is according to the predicate expressed by «it exists; there are» (there was; there was, etc.), the verb is generally correct in the number with the next topic. Two-piece items such as pants, pants, gloves, wounds, jeans, tights, shorts, pajamas, drawers, etc. and instruments such as scissors, pliers, pliers, glasses, folding bars, pliers, etc. make a plural when used in the raw form and are unique when used with a pair.  In addition, writers can often avoid the question of gender-neutral singular pronouns by reworking a sentence so that the subject is pluralistic: on a subject composed of positive and negative feelings, which are distinguished by singular and plural forms, a verb corresponding to the positive element should be followed by a verb that corresponds to the positive element: the agreement between the subject and the predicate. The difficult cases of the subject`s agreement and the predicate in the number. Approval of possessive pronouns. Agreement on staff pronouns.
