hi I know the question is discussed a lot of times.
But i have a doubt, i found that its not covered on any of the forums.

the doubt is Option D Uses the word ever as a part of subject in the clause...so why is the verb Experience (Plural verb used)..........
Pls address my doubt

@Archit143, I have highlighted subject, verb and object.

I didn't get which plural verb you mentioned.
every 26 seconds a person in the United States will experience a coronary event

Hi,

The subordinate clause subject "every....." is a singular clause subject thus using singular verb "will experience" in future tense

Note:
Every player will experience (future)
Every player experiences (present)

Hope this helps :)

Do we have plural form "Will experience"...If yes than can you pls write...I was thinking that since "Experience" is plural so "will experience" is also plural.

Present
I experience
you experience
he experiences
we experience
you experience
they experience

Past
I experienced
you experienced
he experienced
we experienced
you experienced
they experienced

Future
I will experience
you will experience
he will experience
we will experience
you will experience
they will experience

Evidently there is no plural form. Experience is a non-countable noun. However, it can be used in both plural and singular form, unlike most non-count nouns:

I have a lot of experience
I have a lot of experiences

Re: American Heart Association researchers have calculated that [#permalink] New post 22 Oct 2013, 22:37
Why the correct answer is not E?Since the question uses the word "should" and E also uses the same word. Answer D uses the word "will", is changing the meaning of the sentence, making it too obvious. Isn't it? Please help!!! :?
Thanks,
Arka

I opted for E instead of D to go with the verb choice in the original stem "should" instead of "E"

We'd have to have more information about this research to understand the meaning behind the sentence and to be better able to judge.
Having said that, choice "D" does make more sense
