What is the SVA rule for fractions? For instance, what would be the right verb for the following phrases?
a. one-fourth of the pizza (is/are)
b. two-thirds of the students (is/are)
Thanks for the help.
It depends on whether you're using a plural form of the object noun.
A quarter of the pizza is mine.
Two thirds of the students are yours.
