    I have a some doubts regarding of "subject verb agreement". How do we will use this in a sentence? and How can we understand where we will to apply it.
    The simple answer is that the subject and the verb must always agree. There is no question of knowing how or where to "apply" it. For example, if the subject is "they" and I want to use the verb "to be", I must use the third person plural form "are".

    Please note my amendments above in red. Note the following rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - Do not put a space before a full stop, comma, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a full stop, comma, question mark or exclamation mark.

    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
