## pairs / ones

A. Would you like to try some pants.

B. I want to try those blue pairs.

Is it acceptable to replace "pairs" by "ones"? Please.

## Re: pairs / ones

Yes. But, it's "the blue ones" or "the blue pair." Assuming you are talking about one pair of pants.

You mean "the blue ones" equal with "the blue pair" not "the blue pairs" here, right? Please.

'The blue ones' refers to 'the blue pants'.

- more than one pair of pants
I want to try those blue ones - the blue pants, the blue pair of pants..

I want to try those blue ones - the blue pants, the blue pair of pants..

Is it right to replace "those blue ones" by "that blue ones" ? Please.

No. "Ones" is plural so you would need to use "those" in that context.
