    what is it ? it is

    I want my students to learn this sentence ''What is it?''
    and I want them to answer ''It is (noun).''

    The problem is I don't know if the compliment has to agree with the subject in number.

    For example,

    What is it?
    It's a glue/glue/glues
    It's a scissor/scissor/scissors
    It's a french fry/french fry/ french fries

    Please help. Thank you

    Re: what is it ? it is

    That's easy!
    'It' is singular so you can only use the singular form for the noun.

    It's a glue.
    It's a scissor.
    It's a french fries.

    Example,
    It's a apple.
    It's a banana.
    It's a food.
    It's a paper.
    It's an equiment.
    It's a furniture.
    It's a dancing.
