Two subjects joined by "and" are usually plural and require a plural verb. Don't be fooled when the subject comes after the verb - they must still agree. Collective nouns like "family" or "committee" are singular when they are being thought of as a single unit. Pronouns like "few", "both" and "many" refer to more than one thing and require a plural verb. Expressions of time, money and distance usually take a singular verb. Some nouns, like "clothes", "glasses" and "pants" are always plural and require a plural verb. Some nouns, like "news", "mathematics" and "headquarters" may sound plural because they end in "s", but they are singular.
