    Which are the correct words?

    One in two men is/are balding by the time he/they is/are 50, and one in five women suffer/suffers from thinning.

    Which words in bold should we used?

    Many thanks.

    Re: Which are the correct words?

    If the sentence says, "one in ..." then one is the subject and the verb must be third person singular. is...he...suffers
