    May I suggest that you will answer the students' questions?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Thanks
    Either one seems fine to me. Questions (plural) would seem to make sense, seeing as they are arising from students (plural).
