I hope everyone on the forum is well

Could someone be so kind to check the highlighted words for me. I'm a bit confused as to whether I should in fact be using are instead of is, or usual a plural etc!

As always, many thanks!

Bob is one of those people who LIKE (likes?) to watch football.

Marxism is one of those theories that ARE (is?) seen as left-wing.

Graham, like so many other Harry Potter fans, IS (are?) an avid reader.

Jane, like most nurses, CARES (care?) deeply about her patients.

Elaine is one of those people that LOVE (loves?) to go shopping.

Like many people, Scott LIKES (like?) to relax.

Bob is one of those people who LIKE (likes?) to watch football. -- Comment this sentence like that:: For example, there are four people who likes to watch football. Bob, Ana, Barbara and Deniz. Bob is one of them and yo uare talking about Bob. In your sentence, Ana, Barbara and Deniz are "those people." So, Bob is "one of them." At the same time, ı mean Barbara, Deniz and Ana by "them".

Graham, like so many other Harry Potter fans, IS (are?) an avid reader.

Jane, like most nurses, CARES (care?) deeply about her patients. --Such sentences confuse people. The sentence between commas is an extra explanation so when deciding whether to use singular or plural, don't read this sentence. Just read the sentence in pink. Jane is singular and you should use is.

Elaine is one of those people that LOVE (loves?) to go shopping.

Like many people, Scott LIKES (like?) to relax. ---Here, the one who likes to relax is only Scott. Now that Scott is singular, use is.

I underlined the places where you should be careful about when you decide whether you should use is or are.
Hi!

This confuses me.

According to a grammar website, the following is correct:

'Nora is one of the candidates who ARE worthy of my vote'

I attempted to use that logic in some of the above sentences, but I'm still wrong!
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Oh wait now my mind is confused too. I will look over what I wrote.
Bob is one of those people who LIKE to watch football.

Marxism is one of those theories that ARE seen as left-wing.

Nora is one of the candidates who ARE worthy of my vote'

These are all the same pattern. The blue is the main subject/main verb. The purple is just a portion of the noun phrase that has an embedded noun and verb within them. The purple embedded noun and verb agree with each other.

Read through what Doll wrote again, and let us know which part seems to contradict this pattern above.
First of all, I must apologise. I confused everythnig with my confused mind. I will try to explain again if you want to read. Emotion: embarrassed

Bob is one of those people who LIKE (likes?) to watch football. -- Comment this sentence like that: In this sentence "who" gives an explanation of "those people". Ask this question: which people? Those people who like to watch football. so, you must use plural. ( I must too:$)

Marxism is one of those theories that ARE (is?) seen as left-wing. Same comment as above. Which theories? Those theories that are seen as left wing. "That" gives an explanation of those theories and we can assume that it belongs to "those theories."

Graham, like so many other Harry Potter fans, IS (are?) an avid reader. This is correct!:)

Jane, like most nurses, CARES (care?) deeply about her patients. --Such sentences confuse people. The sentence between commas is an extra explanation so when deciding whether to use singular or plural, don't read this sentence. Just read the sentence in pink. Jane is singular and you should use is. This is correct too!

Elaine is one of those people that LOVE (loves?) to go shopping. Same comment as your first and second sentence.

Like many people, Scott LIKES (like?) to relax. ---Here, the one who likes to relax is only Scott. Now that Scott is singular, use is. This is correct.

I am so sorry again. Emotion: embarrassed

Please don't apologise! You know more about English than I do!

You have been very helpful, and I appreciate it. [}]
