    everyone knows/know

    "everyone knows that"

    1) Everyone knows that you can buy...

    2) Everyone know that you can buy...

    Which one is right? I guess is 1).

    I googled "everyone knows that" and "everyone know that" in quotes, both have lots of results

    Re: everyone knows/know

    You are better off googling whether "everyone" is considered singular or plural. A good dictionary will have usage notes.

    Re: everyone knows/know

    I know"everyone" is singular.

    If you put in google search box and click search this phrase including quotes> "Everyone know that"

    There are About 57,300,000 results

    So many people made mistakes? Or did I miss out something.

    Re: everyone knows/know

    You need to look at the hits more closely. Many of them contain things such as 'does everyone know that ...', Letting everyone know that ...'.
