MCQ

From the set of sentences given below in question, choose the sentence that is grammatically correct.

Options

  • The management have promised that it will consider my appeal.

  • The management has promised that it will consider my appeal.

  • The management has promise that they will consider my appeal.

  • The management has promised that it will considered my appeal.

Solution

“Management” is a collective noun. Collective nouns can be singular or plural depending on how they are used. But in most situations, collective nouns act as a single unit, so they need a singular verb ‘has’ not ‘have’ which is always followed by V3 (promised). The pronoun also needs to be singular ‘it’ not ‘they.’ Modals such as must, should, will, etc., are always followed by a verb in the first form – ‘considered,’ not ‘consider’.
Therefore, 'The management has promised that it will consider my appeal.' is the correct answer.
