    The apple/apples for each teacher is/are red.

    Hi,

    Question:
    There are 2 teachers.
    I gave each teacher one apple.
    In my sentence below, should I say apple or apples, and is or are?

    Sentence:
    The apple/apples for each teacher is/are red.

    thanks

    Wanting to learn doesn't prevent you from trying.
