compound subjects part one

A subject is the doer of the action in a sentence. A compound subject has
more than one subject.

In each of these sentences, the compound subjects are underlined.

The catand the mouse ran around the room.
Neither the cat nor the mouse heard him.
Both the youngsters and the adults enjoyed square dancing.
Here are two important rules when working with compound subjects. You
will be introduced to several other rules on another page.

➲ Rule #1: Singular subjects joined by and usually agree in number with a
plural verb.

This plant and a large tree were in the photo.
The older boy and his companion have the boxes of fruit.
His dad and my brother are on the same work crew.

➲ Rule #2: Compound subjects that have a single entity agree in number
with a singular verb.

Bacon, lettuce, and tomato is Mitt’s tastiest sandwich. (Bacon, lettuce,
and tomato are a single entity here.)

Chutes and Ladders was Ricky’s favorite game. (Chutes and Ladders is a
game—a single entity.)

All the King’s Men by Robert Penn Warren is a good book to read if
you are interested in politics. (Though the book’s title features a
plural noun, men, the title is considered a single entity. Thus, the
verb is should be used.)

    Nirmala Sitharaman

    Commerce and Industry, Finance Corporate Affairs
    Nirmala Sitharaman is an Indian politician presently serving as Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Ministry of Commerce & Industry, as well as a Minister of State for Finance and Corporate Affairs which fall under the Ministry of Finance headed by Arun Jaitley. Until recently she served as a national spokesperson for Bharatiya Janata Party.As a visible spokesperson of the BJP, Nirmala played a key role in the run up to the 2014 elections by effectively projecting the Modi-for-PM message. And even before the elections were held, it was a mass presumption in political circles that if the NDA indeed came to power, then Nirmala would make it to the Narendra Modi cabinet. In an election that not many thought would be that one-sided, the BJP vanquished the Congress and UPA and managed to get simple majority on its own.On May 26, Nirmala Sitharaman was sworn in as Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Ministry of Commerce & Industry, as well as a Minister of State for Finance and Corporate Affairs which fall under the Ministry of Finance headed by Arun Jaitley.
