I would like to ask which of the following sentences is grammatically correct.
- They (nouns) can be the subjects of sentences
- They (nouns) can be the subject of a sentence
Shouldn't we use the first sentence as "they" is a plural pronoun and "subjects of sentences" is also plural? So each noun can be the subject of a sentence (or sentences). The second sentence seems to mean that all nouns can be the subject of the same sentence. However, I see the second sentence much more often, so I am confused.
