confusing subject-verb agreement

Good day,
Which of these two is correct?

  1. What I hate most is how the cannons look

Or

  1. What I hate most is how the cannons looks.

Given the article above, this question seems impossible to be explained in a grammar book, as it will not perfectly answer infinitive form of the verb+article, it’s a ‘juggle’.

I believe this advanced site will help me clarify this though.
I’ve done my research already. Pls help. Thx.

Answer

Assuming there are multiple cannons, the first of your number 1s is correct. I believe the valid options are:
1. What I hate most is how the cannons look
2. What I hate most is how the cannon looks
This is subject/verb agreement.
