I am an English teacher. In an exercise on nouns that are both uncountable and countable, one of my students made this sentence.
Carrot is good for you. I checked the dictionary and saw that carrot is indeed classified U/C, both uncountable and countable. But this sentence just doesn't sound right. Can carrot be used in this way as an uncountable noun, or would we have to say "carrots" are good for you. I have about 12 hours before I have to turn in this exercise and don't want to seem like I've been stumped! Thanks for your help.
P.S. We are using "American" English.
