    one day leave and two days leaves?

    1) I apply one day leave.
    2) I apply two days leaves.

    Are these two sentences grammatically correct?

    Thank you.

    No.

    Use either "I applied for one day of leave/two days of leave." or "I am applying for one day of leave/two days of leave."

    'Of' is not necessary in my dialect, AusE. "I applied for two days leave" is normal. (Or maybe it's "two days' leave".)
