Subject – verb agreement and the parenthetical phrase
Writing for Business
|Which is correct?
Easy administration, as well as greater security, ___ expected when you install an IP surveillance system.
Explanation: The part between commas is a parenthetical phrase — ignore it when you’re identifying the subject. Administration is the subject in this sentence, so that’s what the verb has to agree with.
