Should I say that the (a) main target of a project is children or that (b) the main targets are children?

Thank you in advance!

  • It's the subject, not the object, that determines the verb. If your turned the sentence around and made children the subject, you would use the plural: Children are the main target of a project. Jan 19 '20 at 20:12

The word target has several meanings. In your case, target is singular [a person or a particular group of people that something is directed at, or that something is intended for]. The possible variant is The target audience for a project is children.
