    Verbs

    Hi there

    I am helping my son with grammar. I am stuck on the following question on Verbs. I need to fill in the blank with "was" or "were".

    <Was/were> you reciting at the concert?
    As the subject is singular, I guess the verb will be singular; in this case "was". Am I right? Please advise?

    I'm an English teacher.In answer to your question regarding was or were."You" whether singular or plural can only be used with were.Ex:What were you doing yesterday?Why were you late for class? etc.
    I hope this answers you question.
