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).
The leader of the party (a)/ along with his followers (b)/ need great help. (c)/ No error (d)
Correct Answer : c ) need great help.Explanation :
The error is in part C.
In the given sentence, the context states that the leader and his followers need great help.
In place of ‘need’ (plural verb), we have to use ‘needs’ (singular).
This is because ‘along with’ follows the first subject rule.
It means that the verb used is in accordance to the first subject i.e. ‘The leader of the party’ which is singular.
So, singular verb (needs) will be used.
Hence, (C) is the correct answer.
