Fax sheet cover letter
If the full number of pages IS not received
If the full number of pages ARE not received
Is there a better way to word this (question mark).
I disagree with Michael's last statement, likely because I am an American English speaker and he is a British English speaker. There are differences. Here's how we look at it in the US:
The subject of the sentence is number. That is a collective noun. When you use the definite article (the) in front of number, it is a singular noun. "The full number" is one number.
That said, Michael's suggested rewrite is exactly what I would change it to.
