    Question Ability or Abilities

    Hi All,

    I am not sure whether the following sentence is correct. I feel that 'ability' does not match with plural 'entities'. Please comment.

    'MLPs are actively managed entities with the ability to make acquisitions and investments.'


    Thanks,

    MG.

    Re: Ability or Abilities

    There's nothing wrong with it- they each have the same ability.
