    Another question

    He's a sort of people who're incapable of deceiving you.

    I saw this sentence in a vocabulary book.
    Why the sentence cannot be:"He's a sort of people who's incapable of deceiving you."

    I think they're both wrong. I'd say 'he's the sort of person who is incapable...'

    "Did my Aunt remember me on my birthday?"

    does not necessarily equal

    "My Aunt gave me a birthday present."

    If she did in fact remember, she may have given a gift or a card or said, "Happy Birthday!"

    :D
