    begin

    With a compound subject connected by "or" take the verb number form the closest noun/pronoun. In this case it is the plural "members"


    is

    "Each" is a singular subject.



    Have you guessed the identity of the person to who I am speaking?

    Pedro Martinez signed a baseball for Chad that he had used in a game.

    Pronoun Case on the above?
    whom

    The objective case of "who" is used as a prepositional object.

    There is nothing wrong with the pronoun case in the second. The only problem is the placement of the relative clause.

    her

    In this case, the gender is known to be female.

    their (registrations)

    All students is plural and they are third persons.

    increasing

    This has to be an adjective to modify "interest", not an adverb.

    heavier

    With two people, you need a comparative, not a superlative.
