    Hi,

    Rather than post a new topic I thought I'd ask this one which is of the same ilk!!!!!

    "Personally it is a matter of principal but the chance of getting someone to change it for you are very slim."

    In this example would it be just a matter of preference/taste whether you used is or are where I have highlighted? I personally prefer are!

    Many thanks

    I would say:
    "Personally it is a matter of principal but the chance of getting someone to change it for you is very slim."

    or

    "Personally it is a matter of principal but the chances of getting someone to change it for you are very slim."
