主谓一致 主谓一致概括起来有三种一致原则，即语法形式一致，概念一致（语言内容上一致），就近一致（谓语动词的单复 数形式和紧位于其前的主语一致）。 1. 语法形式一致 （1）单数主语、单个动词不定式、动名词短语以及从句作主语，谓语动词要用 数形式。复数主语，用 and 或 both…and 连接的动词不定式短语、动名词短语以及主语从句作主语，谓语动词则用 数形式。例如： 1) Th
e performance was very funny. 2) Serving the people is my great happiness. 3) Whether we’ll go depends on the weather. 4) Many natural materials are becoming scarce. 5) Both you and I are students. 6) What I think and what I seek have been fairly reflected in my paper. 1.When and where to build the new factory _______ yet.

(两人都不喜欢对方的朋友。) 2) Everything around us is matter. (我们周围的所有东西都是物质。) (4)在 neither of 与 either of 的结构里，一般语法书都认为谓语动词可用单数形式也可用复数形式，但在考试中倾向用 单数形式。例如：
1) Neither of them was in good health, but both worked very hard. 2) Has either of them been seen recently? 1.Anyone who _______ to come _______ welcome.
