    Re: Word

    I prefer "save", since "places" is plural. But, sometimes the word in the plural form also use single verb. right?

    "politics" is singular, an it. Not all nouns ending in s are plural.
    Mathematics is my favorite subject.

    Politics can be plural.
    e.g. What are his politics? (=beliefs)
