This question already has an answer here:
The sentence is this:
“two of the people I met were a sweet couple who wanted to move to the countryside.”
I have two questions.
Do I match “were/was” to “two of the people I met” or to “a sweet couple”?
If I need to match to “a sweet couple” do I take the couple as a single entity and use the singular case or do I need to consider the couple as more than one and use the plural case?
