Student or Learner
Is this sentence right? "The student, such as Tom and John are good" or I should say "The student, such as Tom and John is good"?
But the meaning isn't clear. Does it mean 'Those students who are like Tom and John are good' or 'Most of the students - examples include Tom and John - are good' (that is, are T&J the benchmark or are they just examples)?
The student, such as Tom and John, is good sound most unnaturaal to me.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
Tom and John are only typical examples. I think we still use 'are'?
