    These words are often confused and not remembered how to explain the correctness. Thanks for the short, to the point reminder.

    Thank you so much. I think I now understand ‘was and were’ a bit better.

      Six doughnuts were eaten. I see a lot of Americans using was for everything. I wish I could correct them.
      I was, you were, he/she/it was, we were, you were, they were.
      But they keep saying: I was, you was, he was she was it was, we was, you was, they was. Grammatically incorrect.
