    Is or Are?

    Is this sentence correct? ' Why are everyone such losers? '. Should I substitute IS for ARE?

    Re: Is or Are?

    I would say, "Why are they all such losers?"

    ' Why are everyone such losers? '. Not good. *Everyone are such losers.

    ' Why is everyone such losers? '. Not good. *Everyone is such losers.

    'everyone' is singular. Everyone is such a loser. Why is everyone such a loser?
