    Although uncountable nouns require none'' to be conjugated with a singular verb, ''e.g.'', ''None of this meat tastes right'', the pronoun can be either singular or plural in most other cases, ''e.g.'', ''Fifty people applied for the position, but none were accepted.'', and ''None was qualified . However, where the given or implied context is clearly singular or plural, then a matching verb makes better sense: : None of these men is my father. : None of those options is the best one. : None of these people are my parents.
