    Default Singular or Plural?

    Hi,

    Please let me know if the following sentence is correct.

    Asssociates need to display their ID card.

    If I say,
    Asssociates need to display their ID cards(instead of card) will this render the sentence incorrect?

    I feel when we are talking about associates-which is plural, cards is a better option, isn't it?

    Regards,

    You are absolutely right in using

    Associates need to display their ID cards (since each of them is entitled to one card)
