          why would we use be here ….there are two ways here either we can use will be stopping the sharing of data or we can say will stop sharing the data

        (ii) The painter is now free to paint everything he chooses. There are scarcely any forbidden subjects, and today everybody is prepared to admit that a painting of some fruit can be as important as a painting of a hero dying.

        There are scarcely any forbidden subjects………….ye subject ni hoga yha …due to “any”

        1. Ambika

          yes , the common prevailing rule is to use singular noun after any but according to the context we can use plural also..and here it want to say that there are not many ( means 2-3 subjects are forbidden) so subjects is used.. all depend on the context and what is in mind of the author

            :))….thnku

      3. Player

        (i) Horror stories about artificial intelligence abound: whether it’s robots stealing our jobs, or smart appliances spying on you.

        it’s robots …….it’s used for singular na & here robots -> plural

        1. Ambika

          it’s is not used for robots here
          it say whether it is (robots stealing our job) – means (it is ) is used for the whole phenomena .
