From page 49 of Guide 8, 3rd ed - Manhattan's Sentence Correction , I understand that each or every requires a singular verb form, e.g. "Each of these shirts is pretty", and "They each are great tennis players".

Therefore:

1. Am I right to state that the following sentence is correct: - "Each of them is a great tennis player" and this is wrong: - "Each of them are great tennis players"

2. Applying the same strategy, I don't understand how these two sentence examples at page 204 of the said manhattan book are wrong: - "Each company has similar issues" and "Every company has similar issues".

3. I don't understand what it precisely means by "Comparison requires plural" after the right sentence "All companies have similar issues".

Thanks

-Correct.

2. Applying the same strategy, I don't understand how these two sentence examples at page 204 of the said manhattan book are wrong: - "Each company has similar issues" and "Every company has similar issues".

- Incorrect. In terms of grammar, it is still correct however the meaning is not clear with the use of "each". This is incorrect not because "each - is" is incorrect but because the use of "all" is much clear in conveying the massage.

3. I don't understand what it precisely means by "Comparison requires plural" after the right sentence "All companies have similar issues".

- Correct.

"Each company has similar issues" - unclear meaning. "Each company can not have same issues" rather "all companies have similar issues". Therefore, later has the clear meaning.

Hope that helps.
