The company needs to combine their global connection and understanding of industry issues, in order to provide better services and solutions for their clients.

Thanks.

Ernest Young has since been providing four main service lines - Assurance, Tax, Advisory and Transaction Advisory Services (TAS). Under these main service lines, there are a vast variety of services which cater to different clients’ needs.

Should it be 'is' instead of 'are'?

Thanks.

If my friend is picking me up in his car, and I think he has arrived, which question should I ask?

Are you at the car park? or
Are you in the car park?

Is the question the same regardless of whether his car is parked in/at a multi-storey or street-level car park?

Thanks.

We write "US President Donald Trump", but we write "Our President, Donald Trump.

Correct me if I'm wrong about the above. If I'm correct, what is the reason for a comma after "President" in the second phrase but none in the first?

Thanks.
