Protected edit request on 28 November 2014[edit]

Bad grammar; please fix! The phrase "any of the articles" must be treated as a singular subject. Replace "are" with "is" as shown below.

This:

"however, no warranty whatsoever is made that any of the articles are accurate."


must be changed to this:

"however, no warranty whatsoever is made that any of the articles is accurate."


Thank you,

Pictogram voting comment.svg Note: It is correct in its current form based on its associations. It is singular in relationship to "warranty" which is why it is "no warranty whatsoever is mad that any of the articles" - it is plural in regards to "accurate" which is why it is "any of the articles are accurate." I will say that "whatsoever" doesn't add anything to the value of the sentence and should be removed to any admin that reviews this request. — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 19:22, 28 November 2014 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done: My gut feeling was to decline this request last night when I noticed it on my watchlist, but I couldn't put my finger on why ... "any of the articles is accurate" just didn't sound right to me. I've therefore declined this request thanks to your comments, @Technical 13:, but have removed "whatsoever" from the sentence as suggested. Graham87 03:23, 29 November 2014 (UTC)
