An error sentence.

Postby pdh0224 » Wed Sep 01, 2004 8:02 am

Dear teacher,

"Star Trek" is notable for having created its own elaborate history of the future, which together with its themes, best stories and strongest characters add up to a modern mythology.

Q : I think "add" need to have "s" because the subject of it is "history". What do you think?

All the best, :)

You are right. There should also be a comma after 'characters'.
