    Could you please suggest me the right answer?

    1. There (isn't / aren't) enough seats on the bus. We'll have to stand up.

    Re: noun:

    'Seats' is plural, so the verb should be plural.

    Your thread title has nothing to do with your question. A good title would have been isn't/aren't.is/are.

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:
