B. Second, draw a line from the verb to the subject it is suppose to agree with.
C. Third, in the space provided below each sentence, rewrite the sentence so that all the subjects and verbs agree.Remember, the term, subject, does not necessarily refer to the subject of the sentence; rather, it is the subject of the verb. These can be different.
