Today we are talking about a delicate kind of sentence that causes you to make a mistake with the agreement between the subject verb. As we all learned in school, a single subject corresponds to a singular verb, and a plural subject corresponds to a plural verb.

Expressions like everyone, everyone, everyone, person and person must be followed by a singular verb. The names of sports teams that do not end in “s” take a plural verb: the Miami Heat have searched, the Connecticut Sun hopes that new talent .
