    them , follow

    1) I love the candies mum bought for me. I will put them in the drawer.

    Can I use it to replace them in the above sentence, or they both are correct?

    2) Please see all details as follow.

    Shall I put follows instead of follow in the above sentence?



    Thank you.

    Why should you think that the singular pronoun 'it' can refer to the plural noun candies?

    Regarding your other, non-related, question. Usually we ask you to post unrelated questions in a separate thread. This one is so concise we can answer it with one post. If you have further questions about it, though, please start a new thread.


    2) Please see all details as follow.

    Shall I put follows instead of follow in the above sentence?
    Yes.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
