    Verb after "the type of buildings".

    Is it wrong if I write "This type of buildings bring back many happy memories"?
    I think it is but I am not sure.
    Should I write "brings" because "type" is singular here.

    Thank you.

    No.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Because the subject of the sentence is "this type", which is singular.
