Topic: 'Many a '
Posted: Wednesday, May 23, 2018 9:38:48 AM
'Many a' is always followed by a singular verb - e.g Many a student in the school is good at English.

Why then is the below marked incorrect ? (in one of the books with me) In short, my question is, isn't the below statement correct ?
The polling was marred at many a place by violence.

What if we want to convey that there are multiple posts ? Will 'post' take the plural or 'lecturer' or both ?

Even otherwise, are ALL the three options mentioned grammatically correct ?
