    Hello teachers
    I have these three choices in my book , the writer asks me to choose the right one
    To know the right one really confused me ,
    1-Passages returns to Christian era .
    2-Texts refers to Christian time .
    3-Articles dates to Christian period .
    note : you can exchange the words among the three sentence
    I prefer this ,
    Texts dates to Christian period

    Re: which is correct texts ,articles ,passages ??

    None of them work for me- as the nouns are plural, the verb should not have the -s at the end. I'd say:

    Texts date from the Christian era.
    Texts date back to the Christian are.
    Texts/passages/articles refer to the Christian era.

    Even so, the Christian period or era hasn't finished, so 'early Christian' would work better.

    Are you sure you typed the sentences correctly?
    Which one to choose? I think the three of them are wrong. The subject and the verb have to agree. Both should be singular or both should be plural.

    You should follow any of tdol's sample sentences depending on what you are trying to say.

    As they're wrong, they shouldn't, but I would choose the second as the least wrong.
