A tutorial introduces some rules about pronunciation

when one word ends with a consonant sound, and the next word starts with the same consonant sound, we link the sounds.

And then some exceptions are introduced

to given some examples to practice, the speaker says

Let’s try them in a sentence

Using "them" to refer to "two exceptions" is reasonable. However, she gives two sentences after then.

Should she say the following?

Let’s try them in some sentences

Let’s try them in a sentence

Let’s try them in some sentences
