    people...read a book/books

    Hi,

    1- When I quit school, I saw my students waving their hand/hands.
    2- People
    do not read a book/books nowadays.

    They are my sentences. I feel confused and cannot decide if it is OK to use the singular ones - hand, a book. Is it OK? I know the plural ones are OK, by the way.

    Thanks.

    The singular ones are wrong.
