I have this sentence and I am really confused .. I don't know which of both os these is right ?
1 - All of john's friends and supporter hope and pray for his recovery .
2 - All of john's friends and supporters hope and pray for his recovery .
and what kind of mistake is this ?
1- agreement ... or
2 - wrong form
please don't let me down ..
thanks in advance
thanks so much
would you please write the grammer which assure your choice
I know that all gives a plural form but I think here is something different
All of John's friends and suppoerter / suppoerter
so I think there is a special grammer for such sentences
don't forget and here

In other words, it's an agreement problem.
All heads the coordinated set friends and supporter. Both nouns need to agree in number.
1 - All friends and supporter
2 - All friends and supporters
Thanks so much
