Subject-Verb Agreement means that the subject and the verb must AGREE/match in number (plural or singular).
Basic Rule: If the subject is singular, the verb must be singular. If the subject is plural, then the verb must be plural.
Plural - more than one, multiple
Singular - one
Joe, Mary, and Kate.. (plural, more than one person so it's called a compound subject)
She ... (singular, only one girl)
Subject and Verb are inverted, but the rules are the same
Many times, this rule works, but there are plenty of exceptions (think about how you use the verbs first):
For example, one exception is the set of verbs is/are.
Noun is singular: I am going to the store tomorrow to buy milk, eggs, and fruit.
Noun is plural: They are going to the store tomorrow to buy milk, eggs, and fruit.
