The verbs in the present tense for singular subjects in the third person (he, them, he and everything these words can represent) have S endings. Other verbs do not add S. 6 endings.

I still have a problem with the subject of agreement 20. Last rule: remember, only the subject affects the verb! Everything else doesn`t matter. Note: In this example, the subject of the sentence is the pair; That is why the verb must correspond to this. (Because scissors are the subject of the preposition, scissors do not affect the number of verbs.) Rule 2. Two singular subjects, which are connected by or by or, or, or, or not, neither/nor connected, require a singular verb. .
