If I wrote a sentence saying "More than one person a day _______ killed by these massacres," would the blank be replaced by is or are?


1 Answer 1


"More than one"=2 or more and takes the plural "are."

  • That would be logical, but it doesn't seem to be conventional. Could you back this up with a source or further explanation?
