He's a sort of people who're incapable of deceiving you.

I saw this sentence in a vocabulary book.
Why the sentence cannot be:"He's a sort of people who's incapable of deceiving you."

I think they're both wrong. I'd say 'he's the sort of person who is incapable...' ;-)

"Did my Aunt remember me on my birthday?"

does not necessarily equal

"My Aunt gave me a birthday present."

If she did in fact remember, she may have given a gift or a card or said, "Happy Birthday!"

:D
