The general rule is that the verb form should always be in accordance with the subject.

First, we must locate the subject and identify whether it is singular or plural. Since the subject is an indefinite pronoun, we must know what an indefinite pronoun is. From the word ‘indefinite’, an indefinite pronoun does not pertain to anything specific in particular.

Indefinite pronouns usually take the singular verb form. But, indefinite pronouns such as few, many, several, and both take the plural verb form. Some indefinite pronouns can also be plural or singular depending on the context.
