Yahoo Answers is shutting down on May 4th, 2021 (Eastern Time) and beginning April 20th, 2021 (Eastern Time) the Yahoo Answers website will be in read-only mode. There will be no changes to other Yahoo properties or services, or your Yahoo account. You can find more information about the Yahoo Answers shutdown and how to download your data on this help page.

Native English speakers, could you please help me with these issues?

Are both these sentences correct (or do they make sense):

a)  "The United States attract many people because it has people who have distinguished themselves in many fields."

b) "The United States attract many people because it has distinguished itself in many fields."

    The United States is singular, not plural, so it -attracts- many people.  Otherwise perfect.
