Q. Mr. Budhrani, (1) / my friend and professor, (2) / are known for (3) / his good behaviour. (4) / No Error (5)- Published on 01 Feb 17
Replace 'are' with 'is'.
When two singular nouns are joined by 'and' refer to the same person or thing, the verb used for them should be 'singular'.
The correct sentence should be: Mr. Budhrani, my friend and professor, is known for his good behaviour.
e.g. Rice and curry is the staple food of the Indians.
Here, rice and curry, refer to one thing 'food'.
