On the other hand, there is an indeterminate pronoun, none that can be either singular or plural; It doesn`t matter if you use a singular or a plural plate, unless something else in the sentence determines its number. (Writers usually don`t think of anyone not to mean just any one, and choose a plural verb, as in “No engine works,” but if something else causes us not to consider any as one, we want a singular verb, as in “None of the foods are fresh.”) The sequence of words in English is subject-verb-object (SVO). Sometimes, however, the subject and verb are exchanged or reversed (VSO). This typically happens in questions and there are/there are sentences. Be sure to identify the real subject. Some indefinite pronouns like all, some are singular or plural, depending on what they relate to. (Is the thing we are referring to accounting or not?) Be careful in choosing a verb that accompanies such pronouns. In the case of a singular or non-counting noun or clause, use a singular verb: sometimes modifiers will find themselves between a subject and its verb, but these modifiers should not confuse the fit between the subject and its verb. Some indeterminate pronouns are always singular and need a singular verb, for example: everything, everything, person, person In the very simple example above↑ it is clear that the subject is Singular and the subject It is plural. . . .
