    Verb agreement with "kind"

    Can I say,

    "These/many/three/different/all/what kind of apple"; and
    "These kind of computers are cheap, where both of the "kind" are in the singular. Also,
    "These kind of computers is cheap", where the word "kind is in the singular instead of "kinds".

    Thank you for helping.

    Re: Verb agreement with "kind"

    The words "these" and "those" should only be used with plurals.

    I have never seen these kind of things before.
    (...these kinds of things )
    Sarah is not used to those type of situations.
    (...those types of situations )
