| The behaviour of young (1)/ boys are the subject of (2)/ comment the world over. (3)/ No error

A. 1

B. 2

C. 3

D. No error

Right Answer is: B

SOLUTION

The error lies in part (2) of the sentence. The subject “behaviour of the young boys” is singular in form as it represents a characteristic of their nature. Therefore, the verb should be in singular form too. Replace “are” with “is” in part (2).
