I read this sentence in my economics book:

An expert team of UNO observed that the implementation and enforcement have the principal shortcomings of planning in India.

I strongly believe that "are" should be used instead of "have" after "enforcement" in this sentence. Am I right?

    Grammatically speaking both verbs can fill the position, but would you tell me how you are sure that implementation and enforcement can be described as shortcoming? For example, a lack of both can be a shortcoming not themselves, IMO

  • An implementation can have shortcomings. An implementation could also be a shortcoming. Both are correct.

An implementation can have shortcomings. An implementation could also be a shortcoming. Grammatically speaking both verbs can fill the position but with a small difference in meaning.
