Some undefined pronouns like everyone else, some are singular or plural depending on what they relate to. (Is the thing referred to referred to or not referred to?) Be careful when selecting a verb to accompany these pronouns. The indefinite pronoune can be either singular or plural – regardless of whether it is followed by a single verb or a single verb. 6. The words of each, each, neither, nor, nor, nor anyone, no one, no one, no one, no one, no one, no one, and no one are singular and do not require a singular verb. 1. If the subject of a sentence is composed of two or more subtants or pronouns bound by a plural verb and use it.

One question: what pronoun should I use to refer to “everyone”? Thank you, Alex. It is really conducive to learning and the word of knowledge. I`m interested! Expressions of rupture like half, part of, a percentage of, the majority of are sometimes singular and sometimes plural, depending on the meaning.
