In the following sentence, should i say "it" or "they?" (becuase i put the word "each" and it is plural).

"...then count the number of weights each wood held before it sank."

    I don't understand the sentence. What do you mean by "each wood held?"

    What sank?

  • ENGLISH!!!!!!!!! -

    the wood sank.

    that was just part of a sentence.

    Each wood held metal weights (40 grams)

  • ENGLISH!!!!!!!!! -

    If the wood sank, then use "it."

    Each is singular, as is wood.
