4、主语是单数时,尽管后面跟有but ,except, besides, with ,as well as ,together with along with,like 等引导的介词短语时,谓语动词与前面的主语一致。例如:The women with two children is my aunt .


Mr Smith , followed by his wife and three children , has just arrived.

My new pair of socks is on the bed.


13、不定代词由all, most, more, some, any, none作主语时,也要依这些代词表示的意义来决定谓语动词的单复数形式。如果代词代表复数可数名词,谓语动词用复数;如果代词代表单数可数名词或不可数名词,谓语动词用单数。

19、There be句型、以here开头的句子谓语动词和靠近的主语一致。

20、a number of后面加复数名词或代词,其动词用复数形式;但the number of后面加复数名词或代词时,其谓语用单数。

21、“one or two +复数名词”做主语,谓语动词用复数。

22、many a +单数名词 (许多……) ;more than one +单数名词(不止一……)作主语,尽管意思是复数,但谓语动词还是用单数。注意:“more than +基数词+复数名词”结构或“more +复数名词+than one做主语时,谓语用复数。

This is one of the most interesting questions that have been asked.

He was the only one of the students who was late for school.



例1:Each of the students______ a dictionary.(2004资阳)

A. have

B. is

C. are

D. has

剖析:此题意思是“每个学生都有一本字典”,所以先排除B、C 。句中of students 作each的定语,真正的主语是each,故又排除A 。


例2:How time flies! Ten years ________ passed. (2004天津)

A. have

B. has

C. is

D. are

剖析:Ten years通常被看作是一个时间整体,谓语动词用单数形式。


例3:Not only his parents but also his brother ________to the Summer Palace. They haven’t been back. (2004南通)

A. have been

B. have gone

C. has been

D. has gone

剖析:由not only…but also连接两个并列主语,其谓语动词根据就近原则同相邻的主语保持一致,谓语动词应用单数形式。又因为他们还都没有回来,所以用has gone而不用has been。


例4:Look! There _______ playing with the tourists on Dahe Square.(2004包头)

A. are a number of deer

B. are a number of deers

C. is a number of deer

D. is a number of deers

剖析:句子的主语a number of deer。当a number of + 名词作主语时,谓语用复数。因此首先排除C、D,而deer单复数相同,所以B也不正确。


例5:The Smiths ______ sending e-mails _______ letters.because it is faster.(2005云南) A.prefer, to writing B.prefer,to write

C.prefers,to writing D.prefers,to write

剖析:姓氏名词用复数且前面加上定冠词时,表示一家人或一对夫妇。作主语时,谓语用复数。再如:The zhous live upstairs.(姓周的那家住在楼上)。此题答案应在A、B中选,而短语prefer…to…中的to是一个介词,故又排除B。
