    To all teachers who might show a smart hint

    To all teachers who might show a smart hint:

    First, as a chinese student I'll thank all those who helped me with my last question. This is my second question, and obviously not the ending one, hehe..

    Here it is:

    ".. zoos are also a great tourist attraction which boosts the local tourism."

    Why not --> ".. zoos are also great tourist attractions ..", I mean, why is that sentence using noun of single form as the objective? Is my latter alteration OK?

    Thanks
    Chengwei Liu

    You could use both the singular or the plural there, so your alteration is fine.
