    Question the same

    Are there the same flowers in the garden? can we use a plural noun "flowers" here?

    Re: the same

    "flowers", which is the subject of this question, must be in the plural form if it is to agree with its verb "are".

    Avoiding a plural noun would involve some linguistic gymnastics:

    'Is there an example of the same sort of flower as one of these here?' This would sound pretty odd in most contexts.
