    Default Can you two share?

    Hello,

    Is the following sentences ok?

    Teacher: I'm sorry I don't have enough books. You will have to share (the book) with her.

    OR

    Teacher: I'm sorry I don't have enough boos. You two will have to share (the book).

    Thank you.

    They are both correct. The second doesn't specify the gender of the other person, the first specifies that you will be have to share your book with a girl/woman.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
