What may be inferred about the subject of the sentence in African American Vernacular English?
In this particular case, the verb does not have to agree with its subject and this makes speaking simpler.
This answer choice takes too big a step; the sentence makes no comparison between the function of the subject in AAVE and its function in Standard English.
The AAVE speaker will use is or was with both simple and complex subjects.
We do not have any information about how the AAVE treats the subject. We only know how he or she uses the verb to be.
The sentence states the verb form is chosen regardless of the subject; this means the subject may or may not agree with the verb, but that does not mean the subject never agrees with the verb.
It is usually simplified along with the simplified versions of the verb to be.
