I am very confused about which of the following two sentences is correct:

All mugs have handles.

or

All mugs have a handle.

Grammarly seems to accept both, but are they both okay?

  • Yes, they are. However, one means each mug has a handle and the other means each mug has more than one handle.

They are both fine.

You could use the plural form if there is one or more each

All dogs have legs

All dogs have tails.

And you could use the singular form to emphasise that there is only one each

All dogs have a tail
