I have a sentence with tow (or more) verbs. But I don't understand what it means and what's wrong in this. Can somebody help me?
"The good news is that the NPV and IRR criteria will usually indicate the same investment decision for a given project."
Thanks and regards,
If so, here's why:
The good news IS...... confusingly, news is singular even though it appears to be plural! There is no real plural of news.
".... the NPV and IRR criteria (plural) indicate (plural) the......!
So the 2 verbs belong to different halves of the sentence.
"Is" refers to the good news, and "indicate" refers to both the NPV and IRR criteria.
Does that help?
