'Has' is infact correct.
I believe she is referring to the part that says "the crowd are cheering"
I see, still pretty sure it's correct though?
It sounds right..?
The grammar is completely fine there... unless I'm missing something. "The crowd is cheering" implies it's one person, one thing, when it's not. There are multiple people in the crowd, so it's right to be "the crowd are cheering".
I didn't say if it was wrong or right, I just said that I believe she is referring to that part.
The word "Is" is used when a subject is singular, and "Are" is used when a subject is plural. So yes, the crowd is a plural entity and the use of are would be correct.
It is all correct, though I would use some commas in place of those full stops.
Once again Crayo dominates.
Is still correct if they add a S to crowd.
CROWD IS CONSIDERED AS A SINGULAR NOUN, AS IT ACT AS ONE.
'The crowds are cheering' would imply that it is more than one crowd cheering though
The crowd is since it is a singular noun referring to more people.
any group or set of persons with something in common: The restaurant attracts a theater crowd.
It's considered as a collective noun.
noun Grammar .
a noun, as herd, jury, or clergy, that appears singular in formal shape but denotes a group of persons or objects.
WOW YET OK?! THE GRAMMAR IS FYN THERE ASHLEY SO STFU.
