Q. The United States (1) / of America (2) / are the richest (3) / country of the world. (4) / No Error (5)- Published on 01 Feb 17
Replace 'are' with 'is'. Names of countries, the title of the books, subjects which look like plural, but actually are singular number, are always followed by singular verb.
The correct sentence should be: The United States of America is the richest country of the world.
e.g. Mathematics is a difficult subject.
The 'Malgudi Days' is an interesting book.
