A sentence must have a subject and verb that go together.
Subject-verb inconsistencies occur when the subject is singular and the verb is plural, or when the subject is plural and the verb is singular. For example, in the sentence, "John eat vegetables," John, the subject, is singular. Eat, the verb, is plural. We can replace "eat" with "eats."
