Welcome to Verbal Ability Practice Quiz | Subject Verb Agreement
The following quiz will have 5-10 MCQs. The questions are framed to test your Verbal Ability skills.
Subject-Verb Agreement for Entrance Exams comes generally under the English Section or the Verbal ability section of any question paper. Consider the following statements:
- I am busy.
- You are clever.
- He is late.
- They are here.
These four sentences contain the same verb (be) and the same tense (Simple Present.) but the verb form is not the same in all the sentences. Am is used after I, are after you and they, and is after he. That is, different verb forms are used with different subjects. A verb must agree with its subject in number and person. This rule gives no trouble as long as there is no doubt of the subject and the number of subjects. Sometimes it would be difficult to determine exactly the nature of the subject.
This quiz is intended to provide you a quick and thorough revision of the Subject-Verb agreement part of the English section of the Entrance exams. If you score less, please do not lose calm.
