    Unhappy Subject/Verb Agreement

    The verb must be in present form.

    The verb is To Go

    The Sentence:
    The team ______ their seperate ways after the game.


    What verb form do i use. I used "is going" but I was told I was wrong.

    The collective noun "team" here means individual team members. Actually, the following pronoun "their" has told us so.
