When the subject is "THERE":

The verb agrees with the 'real' subject that follows it.


Examples:
There is no reason to doubt his sincerity -- The verb "is" refers to "reason"
There are thirty pupils in our class -- The verb "are" refers to "pupils"

Two or more Nouns:

When a subject consists of two or more nouns, it is treated the same as a PLURAL NOUN and takes a PLURAL VERB.

Example:
John and Mary have gone for a holiday.


EXCEPTIONS:
To name a few,

"Bread and Butter" --> SINGULAR
"Eggs and Bacon" --> SINGULAR

"Fairly" Vs "Rather":

Fairly:

- Used only before positive-tone adverbs and adjectives. Denote something that is considered desirable or is viewed with approval

Examples:
The lecture was fairly interesting and was fairly attended. -- RIGHT!
The lecture was fairly boring and was fairly badly attended. -- WRONG! Never use 'fairly' in a negative sense.

Rather:

- Used for things either desirable or undesirable.

Example:
The lecture was rather boring and was rather badly attended. -- RIGHT!

Differences:

- 'Rather' can be used before comparatives whereas 'fairly' cannot be used.
I'm feeling rather better today

- 'Rather' is used as an adverb of degree before verbs that express a feeling or an attitude of mind, whereas 'fairly' cannot be used in such a way.
I rather wish I had taken your advice.

Possessive cases (- 's) is used only with the names of living things.

Examples:
The president's bodyguard -- RIGHT!
The table's leg -- WRONG! Rather it should be "The leg of the table"

Comparative Adjectives such as "Inferior", "Superior", "Prior", "Anterior", "Posterior", "Senior", "Junior" - are followed by the preposition "to" and NOT "than".
