Subject Verb Agreement With Quantifiers

A third of this article is used by sta­tis­tical analyses. Quando o sujeito é com­posto por palavras que indicam porções (per­cent, frac­tion, part, majority, etc.), é o sub­stan­tivo — ou o pro­noun — da of phrase que segue que deter­mina se o verbo deve estar no plural ou no sin­gular. Se o sub­stan­tivo estiver no sin­gular, o verbo ficará no sin­gular; se o sub­stan­tivo estiver no plura, o verbo ficará no plura. Veja alguns exem­plos, reti­rados do Gram​mar​book​.com: In the case of a sin­gular or non-​​accounting noun or clause, use a sin­gular verb: the fact that the subject-​​verb con­cor­dance usu­ally has no influ­ence on the meaning or inter­pre­ta­tion of cer­tain sen­tences and that the pos­si­bility that the subject-​​verb con­cor­dance seems use­less from the Swedish point of view does not mean that we can ignore the subject-​​verb con­cor­dance in Eng­lish.

If both nouns are con­sid­ered as any entity, there is no normal plural agree­ment: use a sin­gular verb with sums of money or periods, that is, the verb does not cor­re­spond to the subject‘s header word, but to the sin­gular sum of money or time bar: for words that indi­cate parts, Like what. B per­cent, frac­tion, part, majority, Some, all, none, remains, etc., look at the noun in the sen­tence (the prepo­si­tion com­ple­ment) to deter­mine whether sin­gular or plural ver­batim should be used. If the com­ple­ment to the prepo­si­tion is sin­gular, use une­verb singular.…
