(Which ones are right?)

  • English -

    The only correct sentence is # 2.

    # 6 is o.k., but repeating the word "roses" isn't necessary.

    # 1 is wrong because you can't pluralize "one."

  • English -

    8. If you like roses, I will give you two red ones.

    9. If you like roses, I will give you the two red ones.

    (Thank you for your help. What about 8 and 9? Are both correct?)

  • English -

    Both 8 and 9 are correct. 9 implies that there are roses of other colors, and you'll give the two that are red.
