    Re: Subject and Verb

    This is the one from the site:
    1. The traditional Dual Channel configuration with matched DIMMís come out on top. (Is the underlined part the subject? If so, 'come' should be either "came/come" right?)

    Thanks.

    "come out on top" is fine in that context. It's telegraphic speech, and it's often used in (newspaper) headlines.

    Jack, . . .what do you mean by "either came/come"? I am confused.

    1. The traditional Dual Channel configuration [strikethrough]with matched DIMMís[/strikethrough] comes/came out on top. (Underlined=subject; Bold=Verb)

    If that is not how it works? Why?

    Thanks.

    A slash ( / ) doesn't mean "or":

    EX: Either came/come

    Moreover, you wrote "come", not "comes", which made the phrase even more perplexing.

    The articled used 'come', if the subject is 'The traditional Dual Channel configuration', how come it isn't 'comes'? And you said 'come' is okay? Is 'comes' okay as well? How come I can do that? When it is 'come', what is the subject?

    Thanks.

    Re: Subject and Verb

    What's the subject and verb here? I think it is omitted, but how does it work?
    1. The way you make it, makes it taste horrible. (Is the underlined part the subject?)
    2. The way you make it, make it taste horrible.

    3. I hate the way you make it, you make it taste horrible. (This is a complete different sentence compared to #2 right?)

    Are these correct? If not, why? What do they mean?
    4. Says who? (What's is the subject and verb here? I think it is 'says' because of this 'He/She says".)
    5. Say who? (What about this one? Could it be "You/I say"?)

    Thanks.
