    A good trick that helps in finding subject (or subject verb agreement ) is :

    find the verb first and then put who are what before verb ? The answer to this will give you the answer to what the subject is of the sentence .

    For example : The bell rang .

    verb is rang . now ask what rang ? the answer is bell rang . so bell is subject . bell is singular and therefore it will take singular verb !!!

      I like that a lot. It really helps to focus your attention on the main aspects of the sentence. Thanks!
