why Grammarly marks "was"?
I want to say the Portuguese (in plural) so I think "were" is correct, but Grammarly marks me to change it for "was"
In 1484, when the Portuguese were working on a way to Asia by going around the coast of Africa, Christopher Columbus began in Spain, to develop his theories that the Indies could be reached by sailing west around the world.
