    Subject-verb agreement

    Which one is correct?

    1) A comedy or a horror movie are my first choice.
    2) Everyone were having a good time at the party.
    3) Each of the concerts were very entertaining.
    4) The food and the drinks are delicious.

    Re: Subject-verb agreement

    There is an obvious subject/verb agreement error in all except one. Try to identify the errors yourself first. If you can find at lease two, we'll show you the third and then you'll know the remaining one is the correct one.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
