SAMANTHA, IN ADDITION TO X, IS GOING TO BEACH.
where X = Carrie, Charlotte, and Miranda

along with
accompanied bY
together with
as well as
includIng

Unlike AND, additive phrases do not form compound subjects. Rather, additive phrases function
as modifiers and therefore cannot change the number of the subject.

Hence IN ADDITION TO X ==>this part is acting as a modifier hence SUBJECT = SAMANTHA.

hope it helps.
