    Default error/s

    1. Thank you! I understood it now!
    2. Thank you! I understood now!

    The verb should be 'understand'.
    There is an error in each sentence' would be correct. If I want to use sentences, which of the following sentences should be used?

    1. There is an error in the sentences.
    2. There are errors in the sentences.

    Thanks in advance.

    Because it is the same error in each, I would write "There is an error in each of the sentences."

    Thanks, Barb_D.

    Is it possible to use 'sentences' in the sentence?

    Thanks.
