    What / mistake
    Message from mohammad51 posted on 14-10-2021 at 00:20:55 (D | E | F)
    Hello
    I got this sentence somewhere.
    Tricky indeed!
    So, please help.
    Thank you in advance

    What is the mistake in the sentence?
    Some of the forces that keeps a paper airplane flying keeps the large jets flying in the sky.

    I think it is a mistake with subject-V agreement.
    The verb ( keeps ) should be ( keep )

    But what to do with the second verb; it is also ( keeps) Keeps the large

    Hmm , I got it Keeps = forever (Slang); ( adv) '

    Suppose my answer is correct. Does the sentence not include a run-on ?

    Some of the forces that keep a paper airplane flying keep the large jets flying in the sky.

    Some,representing a few forces,is plural.

    For keeps,for good,for ever.
