correct = nicked (verb: to cut nick into)

onelook.com is a good dictionary source on-line.
Were is correct.
Subject: Were is correct.

As the word remainder represents a portion, the verb to use is determined by the noun in the "of phrase" that follows. In your case, "forms" is plural so use were.

This rule also applies for other "portion" words such as none, all, some, part, etc. Hope this helps.

PS: See 'The Blue Book of Grammar and Punctuation' by Jane Straus.
