"The shipping charges of this package to the USA ___ $10." In the blank--> is/are? I'm getting so much confusion in this sentence of subject verb agreement. What should be put in the blank to make the sentence correct, "is" or "are"? Please help.

What is the subject? (almost always the first noun) Then decide if it is singular or plural.

So is "charges" singular or plural? The charges is ten dollars. The charges are ten dollars. Don't leave me hanging here like this.

To me, "charges" is plural, so correct would be The charges are ten dollars, am I right?

For sentences, it is always good to break them down: The shipping charges of this package to the USA ___ $10. In the above statement, you can break it down into subject / predicate: S: [The shipping charges of this package to the USA] and P: [___ $10.] In the S (subject), "of this package" and "to the USA" are prepositional phrases, which can be omitted when trying to find the correct verb tense. With the omissions, the sentence will be: The shipping charges ___ $10. Realistically, the blank should be "are".
