Patty asks...
in this sentence what is the proper usage of were and was. There were some neutral opinions when there was no perceived differnce.
Anne answers...
You have accurately used 'were' and 'was'. This is because opinions, the real subject of the verb 'were', is plural and difference, the real subject of the verb 'was'is singular. Congrats
