How do I recognize whether a given word is Singular noun/verb vs Plural noun/verb. I know this may be very trivial for many. But I don't know how to recognize.

Many nouns take 's' at the end to form plural noun. However does the verb take it too ??

For eg.

decline - ?? noun or verb ? singular/plural

ensure or ensures -- verb or noun ??

Guru's pls help.

Go through this one. This will help you clear many basics. (This one is legally free)

Then go through the Manhattan GMAT Sentence Correction guide. (You may have to buy or borrow this one)
