"gosta" ou "gostam"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Paulenrique

Both!

  • "A MAIORIA (sing) dos garotos gosta..."
  • "A maioria DOS GAROTOS (plural) gostam..."

The second one is the most used, but both are correct... ;)

Does this relate to boys in general or to a special group of boys?

As we have no context, both scenarios are possible.

Both "Gosta" and "Gostam" work here.
