In the sentence, "Some of their work to make their community a better place to live include(s):" followed by a list of 10 items, which is correct?

a) Some include:
b) Some includes:

A link to a specific rule to share with others would be helpful.


The head word in some of their work is not some but work. Work is singular, so it follows that the verb will also be singular: includes.

  • Shouldn't that be "includes"? "their work includes" vs. "their works include"?
