    Which is the correct sentence?

    1. The plant's reactor Nos 1, 2 and 3 shut down automatically when the quake hit.
    2. The plant's reactors Nos 1, 2 and 3 shut down automatically when the quake hit.

    Which sentence should I use?

    Many thanks.

    Re: Which is the correct sentence?

    If 1, 2 and 3 are 3 different reactors, as I suspect, then sentence 2 is correct.

    Thanks, SoothingDave.

    Am I right to say that the same applies to the following sentence?

    Cashier orders Nos. 234, 235 and 236 are missing.
