Question about expression of plurals

Post by mulanmagnolia » Wed Jan 31, 2018 12:58 am

Please help! When there are two panels and each of them has one hole, which sentence is correct?

1. panels with holes
2. panels with a hole

I think #2 sounds more natural, but I am not sure if it is grammatically correct.

Thank you!

Yes, indeed, the second is more natural, although both are possible.
