    Default Noun

    In the following sentence Kolkata and Hooghly are nouns; what is banks there then? I think the word banks here is also a noun. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    Kolkata is on the banks of the river Hooghly.

    Thanks!

    Yes, "banks" is a noun, it's the plural of "bank".
