    I have .. They have/ He has ... etc

    Please read the following sentences I have a pencil. They have a meeting at 1pm..
    Why is I considered to be plural ..
    One would not write: I has a pencil. One would write: he has a pencil.

    Does anybody know the rule of why I is considered plural?

    'I' is not plural.
    There aren't any rules, it's just language history.
    There used to be different endings for the three persons, singular and plural. To put it in a simple way, '-s' in the third person singular is the only one left.
