To the question in the title, how do you answer?
Do you say , for example "There are some apples." or "Some apples are."
If either is fine, which is more common?
Thank you in advance.
You could say "Some apples are in the basket" but you can't shorten it to your version. You can just say "Some apples".
Q: Who is going to the party?
A: We are.
(You don't have to say "We are going to the party".)
You will also hear "Us" as an answer to that question.
Q: What are the most dangerous animals in the jungle?
A: Tigers are.
However, with questions like "What is in ...", you don't use the form of "to be".
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
Thank you for giving me the clear explanation.
I really appreiciate it.
