    Kindly check my sentences

    Have realty shows on the tv going beyond what they should?

    Does it mean that tv camera has the right to enter our bedrooms?

    We are a family of more than 10,000 members, who believes to move ahead with one vision.

    Valentines Day is here again, & we are offering you a special jewellery collection to make it more romantic for you

    Hockey India should have given written commitment to the players that when they will get their over-due incentives, it will help them to concentrate on game.

    Thanks for your explanation kindly help to clear following doubts:

    Have realty shows on the tv going beyond what they should?....is using going would be completely inappropriate here?

    We are a family of more than 10,000 members who want to move ahead with one vision.....what if I re-write it in the following way:
    our family consist of 10,000 members, who want/wants to move ahead....

    Hi jasmeet,

    Gillnetter has explained it well. Here 'want' agrees with 'who' and it refers to 'members' which is plural. So 'who' is plural.
