Intervening Phrases?

Answer

Intervening phrases are often mistakened for the subject of a sentence. A good example of the proper use of this is to word a sentence as follows: Justin's attention to the plants and animals deserves a consideration, rather than as follows: Justin's attention to the plants and animals deserve a consideration. Though it is a very subtle difference, the difference can change both the structure and the true meaning of the sentence. The verb must always agree with the actual subject and not the object of the preposition.
