    Kindly check it's a small article on journalism

    So suddenly there is a surge in the number of people; specially teenagers in the city – committing suicides in Mumbai. Do you believe it have increased suddenly? The fact is that it’s just another sensation created by the media after the 3 idiots movie. The media need some folder to keep there news business intact, to be more appropriate to keep people busy thinking on the topics, which they have had never though about. It’s just another case in point which showcases that the Indian news journalism, specially Hindi – lacks professionalism.


    Kindly also tell me verb 'lack'(in the last sentence) agree with subject- it's just another case in point or the Indian news journalism? I think it's just another case in point

    ‘it’ in the second sentence refers to ‘surge’ which is singular. ‘lacks’ agrees with its subject ‘journalism’ which is uncountable

    ***NOT A TEACHER*** So suddenly there is a surge of suicides, especially among teenagers, in Mumbai. Do you think it has suddenly increased? It is actually a media-created sensation inspired by the release of a new movie. The media, anxious to stay in business, is constantly reporting news that people had not previously been interested in. This case further shows that Indian journalism, specifically the Hindi-language sector, lacks true professionalism.

    Kindly correct me if I am wrong..

    Do you believe it have increased suddenly?

    I suppose 'have' is appropriate in the above sentence
    because sentence starts with 'do'...or it need only to agree with surge as you said...

    No, the sentence has two clauses.
    1) Do you believe?
    2) (that) it(=the surge) has increased suddenly. ('that' is a dropped here.)
