    All this ?

    Hello all,

    There are many times when someone says many things (or mentions them in an email) and i want to reply by saying "All these sound good to me blah blah" because i refer to all the aforementioned many things.

    However, i've noticed that many english speakers say "All this sounds good".

    Is the former ("all these") wrong or are they both ("all these" and "all this") correct but the latter is preferable?

    Many thanks in advance

    Both are correct, we may indicate them separately or together, as individual units or as a group: this or these. We can also use "it".
