Which sentence is correct?

Post by Lakshya » Fri Jan 12, 2018 10:25 pm

Hi,
Please do let me know if the below sentence is correct.
"This was the choices my mother gave me".

Or I feel that the below sentence is correct
" These were the choices my mother gave me".

If the first sentence is correct please justify as it contains plural word 'choices'

Thanks in advance.
