    singular or plural


    I am reading the IELTs writing task and in an essay they write: "In 1960, 600 men in every 1000 was smoking"

    However I think it should be
    "In 1960, 600 men in every 1000 were smoking"

    What do you think?

    I think you are right and that the essay is not.
