|Writing Assessment||Subject-Verb Agreement|
some people get all the luck not everything is perfect
here though because this sentence has a problem with subject
verb agreement We're talking about two talents so the subject
is plural for the verb must be plural as well
right His talents prove it So it's c yeah proves
is for singular subject Don't be fooled by the prep
positional phrase stuck nicely in between to throw us off
like in engineering and marathon running putting the verb in
the past tense creates chaos You don't wanna do that
like proven and while changing the verb to a different
one also changes the meaning of the whole sentence So
yeah you don't want to go there that's it it's 00:01:01.957 --> [endTime] They were shmoop upped and we're out of breath
