    Problems with agreement

    Hello again, I always get confused with the usage of agreement. Here is my questions:

    1. All students will be assigned a user account. or
    2. All students will be assigned user accounts.?

    What I write is 1, but just feel unsure...
    Or All students will be assigned a user account individually/respectively?

    2. Regular talks given by guest speakers are the basis of this project. or
    The basis of this project is regular talks given by guest speakers.

    Are both of them right?

    I should have more questions, but suddenly I can't think of anymore...

    Thanks for your great help.

    They're OK, but if you prefer the singular, how about 'Each user will be assigned a user account'?

    I prefer the first.

    PS I am sorry about the spam that has appeared in your thread. I am going to delete it now.
