In informal writing, neither take a plural verb, so these pronouns are followed by a prepositionphrase that begins with. This is especially true for interrogation constructions: “Did two clowns read the mission?” “You`re taking this seriously?” Burchfield calls it “a conflict between the fictitious agreement and the actual agreement.” Someone came into the room at night and stole the letter.
