Neither Edward’s Market, which is located in the heart of the city, nor Prime Meats, which has several branches in the suburbs, carry grass-fed beef.

A. carry - Use of plural verb CARRY is incorrect for a singular Subject "MEATS". Don't get confused "Prime MEATS" is not plural in this case as it is the name of a Shop/Market. Hence Incorrect
B. are carrying - Use of plural verb ARE is incorrect for a singular Subject "MEATS". Moreover, why to use Present continuous for a statement that conveys a fact. Hence Incorrect
C. have carried - Use of plural verb HAVE is incorrect for a singular Subject "MEATS". Moreover, why to use Present Perfect for a statement that conveys a fact. Hence Incorrect
D. carries - CORRECT
E. do carry - - Use of plural verb DO is incorrect for a singular Subject "MEATS". Hence Incorrect

Neither X nor Y -- the tense depends on whether Y is singular or plural. Y is singular because it refers to one entity hence "carries."

classic confusion question - 'which' goes for Prime Meats, 'has' says it is singular[it's a name]. Straight D is only possible answer.

A. carry
B. are carrying
C. have carried
D. carries
E. do carry

We need simple present tense with correct verb form.

B, C, and E are out.

Neither X nor Y rule says that the number of Y decides the verb.

Here Y is singular "Prime meats" , so "carries" is correct.

(D)

Guys I end up getting confused when recalling if do, have or many other verbs should be used for singular or plural. Is there a good monologue or analogy that someone can share so that I can get my verbs plurality in order. I will truly appreciate that.

VERITAS PREP OFFICIAL SOLUTION:



For any sentence correction problem with only one word underlined, the decision points are easy to find! Here you are clearly being tested on the tense and/or agreement of the verb. Since agreement tends to be an easier issue than the tense of a verb, start there. In a neither/nor construction such as this, the rule is that the verb must agree with the noun that is closest to the verb. Also, this sentence contains two confusing modifiers so you should slash-and-burn those and read the sentence as: Neither Edward’s Market…nor Prime Meats…VERB. Prime Meats might sound plural, but it is one place and requires a singular verb – only “carries” meets that condition. (A), (B), (C), and (E) are all plural verb forms so are incorrect. Correct answer is (D).
