I don't know which one is correct. Plural or singular.

  • The ears on both sides of my face.

  • The ear on both sides of my face.

  • The safety fences at the machine side and the operator side.

  • The safety fence at the machine side and the operator side.

  • (2 fences in total)

Please help me.

You have two ears and there are two fences. So the nouns in question would be plural.

    But you could say the ear on each side of my face - with "each", you would use the singular.

  • @ColinFine - personally, I'd say I have ears on both sides of my head, the face being the front part. Mar 2 at 14:19
