I came through this sentence in Manhattan SC.
Quote:
The tidal forces to which an object falling into a black hole is subjected are
sufficient to tear the object apart.

I think the phrase a block is subjected are looks awkward. Is this sentence correct ?

Yes, it is.
The tidal forces to which an object falling into a black hole is subjected are sufficient to tear the object apart.
The subject is plural so the verb must be plural.
