Interested in Language
Most people write " Two girls and one boy fail the test".
Is " Two girls and one boy fails the test" also correct ?
I have heard people saying the verb should agree with the subject closest to it.
Is it correct to write " I have heard people saying........"? or
I should write " I have heard people said........."

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.
