Have you either followed and not just to find competing rules on their use, on the question of whether they are really singular or plural? But we are often tempted to use plural verbs when pronouns are either, neither, and each used as subjects, despite the fact that each of them is singular. In the four sentences, the preposition sentences that follow the subject create confusion, because the objects of these prepositions are plural, as is often the case in a sentence, when neither object is.

Most concepts of the verb-subject chord are simple, but exceptions to the rules can make it more complicated.
17. When geriatrics are used as the object of a sentence, they adopt the singular form of the verb. However, if they are bound by “and,” they adopt the plural form. On this condition, the singular or plural verb is based on the subject closest to the verb. If the subject closest to the verb is singular, use a singular verb.
