One verb, two goofs. How is that possible? To start with, the verb in this excerpt from Yahoo! Shine should be singular:

When the subject of the verb is joined by the correlative conjunction neither…nor, the verb must agree in number and person with the noun closer to it. The more glaring error is the use of appraised instead of apprised. They are really very different.

After you appraise this snippet, can you apprise the writer of your findings?
