Sentence Correction: Subject Verb Agreement Questions - Overview

Psychological research suggests that women are more prone than men to exhibit symptoms traditionally associated with depression such as feelings of sadness and worthlessness, whereas for men substance abuse and recklessness is more typical.

Incorrect.

This answer choice is grammatically incorrect. The singular verb is does not agree with the plural subject substance abuse and recklessness.

Incorrect.

While this answer choice corrects the Subject Verb Agreement mistake in the original question, it is stylistically flawed.

The corrected sentence changes the idiomatic construction of the comparative more prone than men (more X than Y) to the awkward construction prone more than men (X more than Y).

Well done!

This answer choice makes correct use of the Comparative construction more prone than men (more X than Y) to logically compare men and women, and uses the adverb typically to describe the verb include.

In addition, it corrects the original subject verb agreement error by changing the singular verb is to the plural verb include.

Incorrect.

This answer choice is illogical and grammatically incorrect. By changing the sentence structure and using rather, this answer choice creates an illogical parallelism between the second symptom of male depression recklessness and women.
