present subjunctive

Post by theminimima » Fri Jul 12, 2019 1:07 pm


I would like to know how do you write this sentence:

"The 5 type of people (that) Marc targets"


"5 type of people (that) Marc target"

Is it the present subjunctive? when there is no "s" on the 3rd person singular?

The five types of people (that) Marc targets... :ok:

There is no connection with the subjunctive in this construction.
