Interested in Language
Please help me understand these kind of grammar.
-A lot of people's nose/noses is/are..?
-The nose/noses of a group of people is/are..?
-A lot of people's ear/ears is/are..?
-They are losing their mind/minds?
-How many finger/fingers am I holding?
-Should question/questions like this/these be..?
Basically I don't know when the subject should be perceived as single or plural.
In your examples they are all plural.
Some of your question marks are incorrectly used and ellipses consist of three dots — not two.
