    Re: supposed to

    Use "is" with a singular subject:


    • I am supposed to study tonight. Maybe I will, maybe I won't.


    Use "are" with a plural subject:


    • We are supposed to study tonight. Maybe we will, maybe we won't.


    Use "was" and "were" to express the Past:


    • I was supposed to study yesterday, but I didn't <singular subject>
    • We were supposed to study yesterday, but we didn't. <plural subject>
