I had this MCQ question one day when I was studying for my exams:
All the proceeds from the fund-raising event _________ going to be donated to charity.
The two MCQ options that I debated on was
I chose are, which was the incorrect answer, unfortunately. However, I am puzzled on why is is the correct answer. According to here, it says that proceeds are plural nouns (and the are in that was corrected by Grammarly) and plural nouns should be used with a plural verb, which is are.
But, according to here, proceeds (money) is uncountable and that uncountable nouns must be used with a singular verb, which is is.
Which is correct?
