Need help with grammar corrections…?

[I so hate it when my teacher expect us to do corrections without help when we have no clue why we were wrong in the first place!!!!!!]

Am i right –

1] anybody is

2] everybody are

3] anyone is

4] everyone is

When to use ‘ought’? — my understanding is ought = should.

John is the (taller) of the twins. – Since this is a comparision between 2 people it should be (taller) and not (tallest)… right?

All, except Muthu, is/are going to the Christmas party next month. (my answer is ‘are’ since ‘all’ = many people)

Jasmine, except her sisters, is/are going to the party. (my answer ‘is’ as the sentence mainly talks about Jasmine = one person)

The following is what is grammatically correct:

1. Anybody is

2. Everybody IS

3. Anyone is

4. Everyone is

John is the taller of the twins.

All, except Muthu, ARE going to the Christmas party next month.

Jasmine, except her sisters, is going to the party.

And you were correct, “ought” does mean the same as “should.”

hmm i would have said everybody is..

ought has a sense of obligation to it… should seems to be more a moral choice


all are (but that seems to contradict my first response regarding everybody is)

jasmine is – singular
