I had 3 debates about using was and were in a sentence, as well as singular and plural meanings.
One fruit with stripes and one fruit with dots was/were found.
And will it also apply to the following variation:
One fruit with stripes and one with dots was/were found.
The fruit within this carton appear(s) to be in a good condition.
When do you use the word fruit and fruits?
THANKS FOR THE TIME!
I have a picture of a box of oranges. I want to caption the photo with the following:
The fruit in the first layer appear(s) to be in a good condition.
Would this be correct?
How about top layer as it's visible in the photo?
