    Default is/ are verb agreement

    What do you think about the following:

    What's your favorite fruit?
    My favorite fruit is apple
    .

    Doesn't it sound so strange?

    Do you think this answer sounds better?

    My favorite fruits are apples.

    "Apples are my favorite fruit" sounds best to me.
