    Sg/Pl after enumeration

    Is it possible to enumerate 5 reasons and to start a new sentence after the reasons with "That are enough reasons for this aspect."

    Can I use "that" in the singular or do I need a plural here?

    Thanks for your help.

    that singular, those plural

    "That" is a pronoun but not a relative pronoun, so, "that" can refer to one thing and not more.

    Thanks for your help.

    So, "Those are enough reasons..." would be correct then?
