I would like to ask whether a singular verb or a plural verb is required in the following sentences.

Here is/are your ten points. Here is/are your bonus points.

Thank you.

  • It depends entirely on if the points are being referred to as a collective unit or not. Both could be correct in context. – Jason Bassford Nov 11 '18 at 23:52
  • @JasonBassford: Can you give examples of possible contexts for each usage? "Bonus points is..." or "Your ten points is..." sound odd to me; I can only think of examples where I would use singular agreement with "Ten points" as a general amount (as in a sentence like "Ten points is not a good score"). – sumelic Nov 12 '18 at 16:30
