Subject Verb Agreement Quizzes & Trivia

To make ourselves understood when we speak and write, it's imperative that we understand the basic rules of grammar. One of these rules is the subject verb agreement, and if you make a mistake it can make sentences hard to read, difficult to understand, or even nonsensical. We all know what a verb is, it's a doing word. The subject is the person or thing who is carrying out the verb.

The agreement is what regulates whether you use a singular or plural form of the verb. Does that sound easy or difficult? You can practice your skills with our subject verb agreement quizzes. You'll be shown a series of endings to sentences or phrases, and have to click on the correct one. Each one you get right adds points to your score, and you'll improve your grammatical skills at the same time.
