Why is this verb plural?

Hola Lucy

What do you mean? verbs don't have singular and plural.

Are you referring to a specific question?

It was question #6 (B1 test):    "He pedido a la mensajería que ________ el paquete por la tarde."

The answer entreguen is in the third person plural, but it seems to me it should be in third person singular, because the subject of the clause (mensajería) is singular.   Please help.   Thank you.

Yes, same question. 'La mensajería' is a singular subject but the correct answer on the quiz is the plural conjugation. Thank you.

the translator probably is a Brit. Brits use 'the parliament have voted....'
