Question of The Day09-11-2021

Identify the segment in the sentence which contains the grammatical error.

No one ever respond positively to my idea of pre-emptive strike.


Correct Answer : d ) No one ever respond

Explanation :

The error is in part d.

As per subject-verb agreement rules, with indefinite pronouns, singular verb is used.

Indefinite pronouns are somebody, nobody, anybody, someone, no one etc.

Instead of ‘respond’ (plural verb), we should use ‘responds’ (singular verb).

Hence, (d) is the correct answer.
