"The Olympic Games is going to be held in London."
Does the word' Olympic Games' takes is or are?
Thanks in advance.
I think of them as "are" -- a collection of games.
If you think of the games as single, major event, you can use "is."
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
