    They are trying to find out "which cities/city" the enemy attacked.

    They are trying to find out which cities the enemy attacked. (from one of my grammar teacher's handouts)
    Is this sentence correct? Is “which cities” correct? I think it’s wrong; it should be “which city”. Am I right? Thanks!

    It's fine if the writer believed the enemy attacked more than one city.
