    expressions

    I am confused about few expressions and I hope that you could help:

    do we say:

    1- "is your parent fine" or "are your parents fine"
    2- " a firm gets bankrupt" or "a firm bankrupts" or "a firm goes bankrupt"
    or any other expression

    thx

    Hi!

    1 = "Are your parents fine?"

    2 = "a firm goes bankrupt"
