Should I say

I've got a red, a blue and a yellow balloons.

or

I've got a red, a blue and a yellow balloon.

?

2

(1) If you have one balloon of each color, the sentence would be:

I've got a red, a blue, and a yellow balloon. (total number = 3)

(2) If you have multiple balloons of each color, the sentence would be:

I've got red, blue, and yellow balloons. (total number = unknown)

(3) If you want to specify the individual number of balloons of each color, it would be (for example):

I've got a red balloon, two blue balloons, and three yellow balloons.(total number = 6)

  • It was option (1), actually. – Vicent Nov 27 '18 at 15:29
