Is this subject verb afreement?
Subject-verb agreement is when the noun which is the subject of the sentence has the same number and person as the verb.
He plays piano. ('plays' is the third-person singular conjugation of the verb "to play". 'Plays' agrees with the subjet, 'he' which is the third-person singular nominative pronoun).
They plays instruments. ('They' is the third-person plural nominitive pronoun, but 'plays' is the third-person singular conjugation.) NOTE: the number does not match the subject. 'They' is plural, and 'plays' is singular. This is an example of subject-verb disagreement.
The nominitive personal pronouns (subjects) are:
I (first-person singular)
You (second-person singular and plural (based on context))
We (first-person plural)
He (third-person singluar, male)
She (third-person singluar, female)
It (third-person singluar, inanimate)
They (third-person plural)
The conjugation pattern for a regular verb, like "to play" is (present simple tense):
You play (singular)/ You play (plural)
The conjugation pattern for irregular verbs will need to be memorised separately, but here is the conjugation for 'to be' (present simple tense):
You are (singular)/ You are (plural)
He/she/ it is
