I want to know which is the subject at the sentence, " there are a lot of people". "Lot" or "people"

3 Answers


people - plural, so "there are a lot of people...", or "There are many people"  - "lot" or "many" modifies "people"



the subject is people


"a lot of people" is the subject - it is a noun phrase
