I'm not sure if I need to add S to "elaborate" here.

"Each of the subsequent paragraphs elaborateS on these functionalities in order."

"Each of the subsequent paragraphs elaborate on these functionalities in order."

Why is your answer the case?

1 Answer 1


The subject of the sentence is 'each of the subsequent paragraphs'. Since 'each' is singular you want the singular form of the verb i.e. 'elaborates'.
