Expert's answer

I. My bunch of keys is missing.

II. One of the students scored distinction in all her modules.

III. Neither Paul nor Pat is attending the wedding.

IV. Had I been there, I would have spoken to him.

V. My bunch of keys are missing. This sentence is incorrect because bunch is a collective noun. Therefore, a singular form of the verb should follow it.
