Hi,

Unfortunately, along with that comes a lot of challenges..

Could you explain what the sentence means? What is the subject in the sentence?

Thanks.

Unfortunately, along with that come a lot of challenges.

The subject is the noun phrase "a lot of challenges".

The other elements are adjuncts, optional elements in clause structure, and not part of the subject.

Note that the subject is postposed to the end of the clause. The basic order would be:

Unfortunately, a lot of challenges come along with that.

The subject is the NP "a lot of challenges".

Here, the subject and the verb are inverted.

So, the non-inverted clause would be: a lot of challenges comes along with that.

Right, and so the verb should be "come".

Yes, the last anon made a mistake. The verb should be plural "come" to match plural "challenges".
