    Is or are?

    Hi there!

    Should the following sentence end with 'is' or 'are'?


    Take a look at the sentence and tell me which the subject, the verb and object are.


    Cheers,
    Tito

    It doesn't work either way. This uses similar wording: Take a look at the sentence and tell me which parts are the subject, the verb, and the object. This is more succinct and avoids the awkwardness of deciding whether the second clause is singular or plural: ​Take a look at the sentence and identify/point out the subject, the verb, and the object.
