Hi! Good morning! I´m just double checking this grammar point. This doubt came up in a Skype English class with a Spanish student. Which is correct? 1. The worst thing IS Spaniards. 2. The worst thing ARE Spaniards. Since a singular subject takes a singular verb, whereas a plural subject takes a plural verb, I believe option 1 to be correct. However, as a native, and I am sure natives would not be sure, option 2 sounds OK too! For an exam I would definately go for option 1. Any opinions?? Many thanks. Mark
