are / is ?

Hi all!

I'm currently writing a report and super unsure if I should use is/are:

The first aspect in the model are / is the basic conditions.

--> not sure if the verb relates to "the first aspect" or "the basic conditions"

Would be so cool if somebody could help :)

Have a nice day!


  • Hi..
    My suggestion - but I'm sure there are more experienced folks than me here

    The first aspect of the model is the basic conditions.

    'of' and is ^

    Hope this was helpful.

  • The verb must agree with the word "aspect" (subject) and therefore should be singular - is.

  • Thanks for sharing. Great post.
