- Half doesn't or half don't? 3 answers
In the following sentence, "other half" and "were" do not seem to match up:
In one study conducted by the University of Michigan, half of the participants were asked to solve a puzzle while mentally referring to themselves as "I," while the other half were asked to use "you".
Shouldn't it be the other half "was" asked to use "you"?
