Subject Verb Agreement: Pronoun Subjects in Relative Clauses

Relative Pronoun Subjects (who, which, that) in Relative Clauses

When the subject of a relative clause is who, which, or that, it can refer to a singular or a plural noun. To determine whether the verb following the relative pronoun should be singular or plural, find the relative pronoun's antecedent.
