Following sentences I came across magazine kindly clear my doubts.

1. The annual earnings have be pegged at $3.86 billion.
In the above sentence we are speaking about a annual so should it be the annual earnings has been pegged.....

2. Vir Sanghvi, reputed as one of the youngest editor(or editors) in the Indian media terrain.

3. The country is witnessing a sea change in the lifestye, mindset, aspirations & attitudes of its people.
In the above sentences it aspirations..attitudes but then mindset and lifestyle are singular without 's' is any structural error or if I add 's' to all the words(i.e including lifestyle & mindset) then is it will be wrong please explain

4. No one should suffer because he happened to be born in a certain race, class or economics condition. (is using economics conditions in the end will be wrong)

5. Everything about Crompton Greaves is (a) world class. (aticle should come or it can be omitted)

Hi,

Following sentences I came across magazine kindly clear my doubts. Please note that it's better to say 'answer my questions' rather than 'clear my doubts'.

1. The annual earnings have be pegged at $3.86 billion. In the above sentence we are speaking about a annual so should it be the annual earnings has been pegged.. No, earnings is treated as a plural word.

2. Vir Sanghvi, reputed as one of the youngest editor(or editors) in the Indian media terrain. 'Editors', because you are saying 'he is one of a group'. This sentence is not correct. For example, it has no main verb.

3. The country is witnessing a sea change in the lifestye, mindset, aspirations and attitudes of its people. In the above sentences it aspirations..attitudes but then mindset and lifestyle are singular without 's' is any structural error or if I add 's' to all the words(i.e including lifestyle & mindset) then is it will be wrong please explain I'd make all these words plural, because you are speaking of so many people.

4. No one should suffer because he happened to be born in a certain race, class or economics condition. (is using economics conditions in the end will be wrong) It's OK, but say the singular 'economic condition'. If you are making a general statement that is true for past, present and future, it's better to say 'happens' rather than 'happened'.

5. Everything about Crompton Greaves is (a) world class. (aticle should come or it can be omitted)

You need to omit it. The phrase is used adjectivally.

Best wishes, Clive

Kindly answer my questions
1. The annual earnings have been pegged at $3.86 billion. In the above sentence we are speaking about a annual so should it be the annual earnings has been pegged.. No, earnings is treated as a plural word. But then The annual is singular and verb needs to agree with subject kindly correct me if I am wrong.



3. The country is witnessing a sea change in the lifestye, mindsets, aspirations and attitudes of its people. Is this correct?

5. Everything about Crompton Greaves is (a) world class. (aticle should come or it can be omitted) You need to omit it. The phrase is used adjectivally. Kindly put some light or give me references for understanding how and when phrase to be used adjectivally.
Hi again,

Kindly answer my questions

1. The annual earnings have been pegged at $3.86 billion. In the above sentence we are speaking about a annual so should it be the annual earnings has been pegged.. No, earnings is treated as a plural word. But then The annual is singular and verb needs to agree with subject kindly correct me if I am wrong. 'Annual' is an adjective, and thus has no effect on the verb.




3. The country is witnessing a sea change in the lifestyle, mindsets, aspirations and attitudes of its people. Is this correct? Yes, but I'd prefer the plural 'lifestyles'.


5. Everything about Crompton Greaves is (a) world class. (aticle should come or it can be omitted) You need to omit it. The phrase is used adjectivally. Kindly put some light or give me references for understanding how and when phrase to be used adjectivally. Consider that you can reword your example as 'Compton Greaves is a world-class person' or 'Compton Greaves has world-class skills'. In other words, If you can use the phrase to qualify a noun, it has an adjectival use.

Best wishes, Clive
