    Solution

    Rule ⇒ After such expressions as one – half of, two – thirds of, a part of, a majority of, (a) use a singular verb if a singular noun follows the of. (b) use a plural verb when a plural noun follows the of. ‘Family members’ is the noun and it is plural so, plural verb ‘are’ will be used.
