    First you have to understand what the "Rule of Concord" is.
    Here's one definition:
    "1 Subject and verb must agree as to number (In some languages, e.g. Arabic and Russian, the verb also must agree with its subject as to gender). 2 Verbs must agree as to tense and mood. 3 Nouns and pronouns and adjectives must agree as to number and gender and case."
    Answers.com - What are the rules of concord in grammar

    Second, you have to understand what it means to say that an English expression is grammatical or ungrammatical.

    Third, you have to decide whether the rules of concord account for the grammaticality (or not) of an expression or sentence. That is, if the sentence conforms to the rules of concord, can you say that the sentence is grammatical?

    Fourth, you have to explain why you either agree or disagree with the statement.

    (Note that "sufficient enough" is a redundancy. They mean "sufficient")
