Hi guys,

Please can somebody tell me whether the below use of allow (as opposed to allows is correct):

Negotiate deals with organisations which allow a range of products to be sold...

Also, if you could provide some reasoning as to why then that would be really great.

Many thanks in advance,

Andy

I would go with 'allows', the act of negotiating being the understood subject.

Hi Phillip,

Negotiate deals with organisations which allow a range of products to be sold...

I see it as simply a plural subject, ie '. . . deals . . . which allow . . .'. Emotion: smile

In addition, when I first glanced at the sentence I took 'which allow a range of products to be sold' to apply to 'organizations'.

I suggest something like

Negotiate, with organizations, deals which allow a range of products to be sold...

Best wishes, Clive
