Hello Everyone,

Following is a sentence I read in a newspaper article today:

If something took us by surprise, it has to be this: a survey involving 779 women between the purse-carrying ages of 19 and 45 have shown that 74 per cent of women think of shopping every minute.

Shouldn't it be 'has' instead of 'have' according to the rules of subject-verb agreement?

Thank you very much!

Regards,
Mr. Anonymous

PS Interesting fact, by the way! One more thing; please point out any mistakes that you find in this post. I shall be very grateful to you!

You are right. The sentence is wrong.

has

Survey (singular) needs a singular verb (has).
