    Question which one is more valid ? and why ?

    which one is more valid ? and why ?

    A- ALL of the companies COMPLAIN..........

    OR

    B- EACH of the companies COMPLAINS..........

    i feel like both of them are grammatically correct , but this question is taken from a grammar test .

    any guidelines on this are appreciated
    thank you

    In my opinion, they both are correct. If you remove the prepositional phrases, you are left with "All complain" and "Each complains".

    Elia, please note that a better title would have been All of the companies complain.
