Two different types kayaks are being compared. A new paragraph is started to compare their equipment. The first sentence says.
"Equipment for both types of kayaks are similar, and fairly simple."
The bold word is getting reviewed. In reference to that, my choices are
A. No Change
The correct answer is B - "is".
When I replace the bolded section with is, it just sounds wrong. Equipment for both types of kayaks is similar...
My answer was A - "No Change". This just sound right to me.
Please explain why I am wrong so I don't make this mistake again.
