    Re: is or are

    "Is". We treat "information" as singular (uncountable).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: is or are

    hm46, your sentences should begin with capital letters and end with full stops.

    The set phrase is 'as follows', whether the antecedent is singular or plural.

    'The information is as follows.'

    'The rules are as follows.'


    Please note that a better title would have been Information is/are.

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'
