can any 1 tell what verb concord is ?

@Mr. Yahoo, Good Attempt! 

@zakeeya_habeeb, your friend has given the correct answer.

 In a grammatically correct sentence, a verb has to agree with its subject in terms of number and person. This is known as subject-verb agreement or verb concord.

You may also refer to the detailed explanation of the rules of subject-verb agreement on the website. Kindly go to English Grammar and click on Subject Verb Agreement Rules on the website.

Subject-verb concord requires that the verb must agree with the subject in number.In the above example the first sentence should be correct (the phenomenon is called proximity) since the noun closest to the verb determines whether the verb should be in the singular or plural.
