I was going through this site http://writing.wisc.edu/Handbook/SubjectVerb.html and came across the following


Rule :A relative pronoun ("who," "which," or "that") used as a subject of an adjective clause takes either a singular or plural verb in order to agree with its antecedent.


ex: Mary is one of the students who have done honor to the college.

(Adjective clause modifies the plural noun "students." "Students" is the antecedent of "who."

I understand the rule but the example. Can somebody please explain?

Mary is one of the students who have done honor to the college.

students --> Subject
Adjective Clause --> who have done honor to the college

Adjective Clause

who have done honor to the college - Here Who is the relative Noun and have is the Verb.

The rule states that when a relative pronoun (Who) is used in an adjective clause the verb (have) should agree with the subject (students).

If the subject is plural then the verb should also be plural.
