Student or Learner
I was hoping someone could give me their opinion about this question and answer. To me the first answer sounds odd and I would mark it as incorrect, but it seems there are many websites that say it is correct.
Is this a difference between British and American English or just my lack of knowledge?
Q: What is your favourite fruit?
A1: My favourite fruit is apples.
A2: My favourite fruit is an apple.
Any comments would be appreciated.
Yes, answer #1 is correct. Fruit is not the subject of this sentence favorite is the subject and it is singular. [My] favorite [fruit] is apples. Singular subject + singular verb + complement. "Fruit is apples" is not the meanng of this sentence; "Favorite is apples" is the meaning.
