    Hi teacher,

    May I know which of these sentences are correct,

    a. Two tanks of different sizes or Two tanks of different size?

    Thank you.

    Re: Sizes or size

    "Two stalks of roses" is very unnatural for me. That suggests you have two stalks but you don't have the flower heads! Why not "Two roses [with stems]"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    As an English teacher, etc128, you should know that these are not sentences.
