My approach:

What my son likes the best on T.V is cartoons.According to me the sentence means he likes a single thing which are cartoons.

Can you solve this through other approach related to subject verb agreement and am i right in my approach?

  • This is better asked on our sister site, English Language Learners. Short answer is what is singular, and is agrees with that. – Dan Bron Sep 20 '15 at 13:39

  • You're probably being directed to ELL a lot because that is a site dedicated to people trying to learn English as a foreign language. English pedagogy encompasses more than simple command of the language: the experts there have honed the skill of explaining the rules in way that's easy to comprehend to people not born to the language. Part of that is being familiar with the stumbling blocks common to speakers of each specific mother tongue. This site, by contrast, doesn't cover learning English so much as using it, and its members are mostly native or very fluent speakers. – Dan Bron Sep 20 '15 at 13:45
