Today when I was teaching my students the above written sentence asked by students. However, I managed but I want to know the real answer from your side. Many native English speakers can do this without any problem. Please let me know the explanation for the above written words.

it is she reads books. yeah because she reads many books so it is all plural. Read does not fit well. She reads books is correct. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day ahead.

so she is not the subject here ? because as SUBJECT VERB agreement singular subject has singular verb.

She( sing) reads(sing) books. The verb here should be alligned with the subject. So since She is singular, the verb must also be singular.

So the words reads and books can occur in a same sentence? Reads is singular and books is plural
