Three to six months is/are enough for preparation. Singular verb or plural and why?

  • It depends on the sentence, on the context, and on the register. – Mari-Lou A Jul 24 '19 at 14:49

Three to six months is enough (time) for preparation.

Time is implied, so it has to be "is." A native speaker wouldn't say "they are enough time," but they might say "it's enough time."
