    Subject Verb Agreement

    I have problem with my SAT question. the sentence is :

    Yesterday, much to the dismay of his wife, the new anchorperson has worn a red necktie that did not match his green suit.

    the error here is '' has ''. I have checked the reason for the answer to be ''has'' in my book and it is mentioned that there is subject verb agreement error here. Please enlighten this issue thanks =D

    Re: Subject Verb Agreement

    I think it is a tense error, not subject-verb agreement; it should be wore, not has worn. If the present perfect were correct, then has worn would be right, and have worn would should an agreement error.
