Question of The Day24-04-2021

The below given sentence has multiple parts. Find the error/no error and indicate your response from the options (a), (b), (c), (d) and (e).

Roman who is the Chief executive, and his companion possesses some amazing skills.


Correct Answer : b ) possesses some amazing skills.

Explanation :

The error is in part B.

In the given sentence, the subject is plural in form. The subject is ‘Roman and his companion’. ‘who is the Chief executive’ is an additional information about Roman.

When two subjects are connected using ‘and’, it forms a plural subject unless it refers to a single entity. Therefore, we need to attach plural verb to it.

So, in place of ‘possesses’ (singular form of verb), we have to use ‘possess’ (plural form of verb).

Hence, (B) is the correct answer.
