This composite subject therefore requires a singular verb to accept it. So if they are used in a plural way, it means that there are many different groups. There is more than one team, a family or a club. And don`t forget that some names look like plural nouns, but they take a singular form. For example, messages.

Must, the will and forms to have, do and be combined with the main verbs to display time and voice. As adjectives, verbs can be, have and change form to indicate changes in subject and time. Can the auxiliary adverb be used for approval or not" Can I leave the room now? ["I don`t know if you can, but you can." depends on the formality of your text or your situation. As Theodore Bernstein puts it in The Careful Writer, "a writer attentive to properties that retain the traditional distinction: may be for ability or fact doing something, can do for permission to do so. SUBJECT-VERBE RULE #1 Two or more singular (or plural) subjects that are linked by a pluralistic composite subject and act as subjects of plural compound and adopt a plural (singular - singular - plural).
