Question and answer
Q: What is the mistake in this sentence and how should it be written? "That brand of car goes very fast, which is why many people wants them."
A: "That brand of car goes very fast, which is why many people wants them." In this sentence, the error is subject-verb agreement. The verb "wants" is singular, when it should be plural. The correct sentence is: "That brand of car goes very fast, which is why many people WANT them."
