    Default I'm confused

    Hi,

    Assuming the size of a chair only allows one person to occupy, which sentence is correct?

    a). They sit on chairs

    b). They sit on a chair

    Also, may I ask what is the reason behind your answer?

    Thank you

    Not a teacher.

    a) is correct. You've provided the explanation yourself. One person can occupy one chair. Several people occupy several chairs.
