    The yolk of the egg is white, since the yolk is singular.

    Could be both, since the plural of yolk is yolk. Although, an average egg will only have one yolk, so one can assume that if there is a single egg, there is only one yolk, making the logical answer the second option.

    is white would be better unless you were saying it plural then it would maybe be "The yolk of the eggs are white."

    If plural, it would be: The yolk of the eggs are yellow (or white if your prefer). Singular: The yolk of the egg is yellow (or white if your prefer).

    it completely depends on if yolk is plural or singular. It is both neither are incorrect so neither are correct. But both are correct, while neither are correct, while at the same they are correct and incorrect. Simple quantum mechanics. (:

    Depending on what you are doing...a really good one is to like go sit outside or somethin and try to describe everything around you, all the smells, the sights, the sounds, sensations. And it will come out surprisingly good! usually ^_^

    @Harkirat: Have you seen an egg other than class A, some of those yolks are pretty funny colors. And the Albumen is clear.
