Identify the best way to improve the underlined part of the given sentence. If there is no improvement required, select ‘no improvement’.

The members in our college always looks for spicy gossips about popular kids in the college.


Correct Answer : b ) Always look for

Explanation :

The given sentence is entirely in present simple tense, in present simple tense, the first form of the verb or present singular, i.e., s/es form is used.

As per the subject-verb agreement rule, singular subjects take a singular verb, and plural subjects take a plural verb.

-s/es form (looks) is used for singular subjects, and without s/es form (look) is used for plural subjects.

‘The members’ is a plural subject; therefore, ‘look’ (plural verb) is used.

Hence, (b) is the correct answer.
