Possessives See the General Rules for Forming Possessives document on Blackboard Its and whose are possessive; it’s and who’s are contractions Subject-Verb Agreement See the Subject-Verb Agreement PP on Blackboard Singular subjects take singular verbs. Plural subjects take plural verbs. “Everybody” and “Each” are singular “Neither” and “Either” are singular when they stand alone “Either/or,” “Neither/nor” will be followed by two subjects. The verb matches the subject to which it is closer. Beware of complex phrases between the subject and verb. They still have to match. Who/Whom See the Who-Whom PP on Blackboard Remember the rule about asking whether you can answer the question with a subject word (I, he, we, they) or an object word (me, her, us, them).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
