Nobody but my sisters wants to stay in now.

  • Nobody but my sisters wants to stay in now. (現在只有我的姊妹想待在家裡) (正)
  • Nobody but my sisters want to stay in now. (誤)
  • Nobody but my sisters wanted to stay in now. (誤)

解說: nobody but 意為「只有…」,其中 but 為介系詞,意為「除…之外」,後接名詞 (人),因此主詞是 nobody,動詞要用單數;又因後面有時間副詞 now,所以要用現在簡單式。Nothing but 同樣意為「只有…」,但 but 後面要接事物的名詞。
