    Please answer me

    dear teacher,
    Should i write this sentence in this way
    1)Boys' and girls' ages is a matter of minor importance, instead of "boys' and girls' ages are a matter of minor importance"
    2)She along with her family are agreed to it, instead of "she along with her family is agreed to it."
    Although i have attempted too many interactive quizzes on subject-verb agreement, i haven't totally grasp it.
    regards,
    zaffar

    The two sentences sound a little awkward to me. I would change those to:

    The ages(they) of boys and girls are a matter of minor importance.
    She and her family(=they) have agreed to it ( is agreed is ungrammatical but you can use Simple Past and say [I] agreed to it).
