Subject-Verb Agreement

One very common grammatical mistake made by those who write and/or speak in the English language is the error in "Subject-Verb Agreement".
The error arises when the
verb of a sentence does not agree with its subject. For example, a singular subject should be paired with a singular verb.

Su Dongpo was a famous poet and statesman.

[Here
Su Dongpo is the subject (singular) and the word was is the singular verb in the past tense.]
Xuanzang and ZhuBajie are two characters in the novel Journey to the West.

[Here the subject is "
Xuanzang and ZhuBajie". It is a plural subject that requires the plural verb "are".
