    subject verb agreement

    A small number of children are educated at home.

    IS there number concord between the subject and the verb in the above sentence?

    Re: subject verb agreement

    Meanwhile, I have got the answer.

    Notional, grammatical agreement.

    Re: subject verb agreement

    Hi,
    A small number = few, which requires the plural.
    OK, that's what notional agreement is about, isn't it?
