Come or Comes


Grab a set of bananas that actually come(s) with peace of mind.


Should it be 'come' or 'comes'?


Bananas come with...
A set comes with...


Does "that" modify it in any way?

Sanjay is correct.  'Set' is the subject of the verb and is singular.  'Comes' is the singular form.  The dependent clause starting with 'that' has no bearing on subject-verb agreement.

I am being told that "Tires" is the subject and "Set" just modifies tires. (By specifying a number?) Is that a potential way to look at this or is it just flat wrong? If so, why can it not be viewed in this way?
