is it 90% of the population do... or 90% of the population does...?
I never know about he she it! Would be helpful. Thanks
Do. The word you have to look at is "percent".
Maybe: When you say 90 % the word "percent" is in it's plural form. The plural form of "percent" is also "percent".
Or maybe: "Percent" has just one form.
Eighter way: Do.
90% do. And one percent does. Or not?
Eher nur in der Verneinung, und da z.B. so:
"90% of the population do not believe ..."
Die "population" wird hier "als Plural gedacht".
Ich glaube do, weil man mehrere Personen meint.
