    No, it isn't, "people" is a collective noun and requires "mock spectators" with no indefinite article. What is it supposed to mean?

    Hello, I agree with the teacher,

    and I am very interested on the meaning of your sentence. Can you rewrite your phrase in another way to show us what would you like to say.

    Thanks.
