#1 is correct. What about the others? In the exam, are they regarded as correct answers or not? •English - Marylyn, Tuesday, December 13, 2016 at 8:34am
I think 2 is correct as well. But the others seem off.

Right. 1 and 2 are correct, but the others are not.

3 would be correct if you replace "that" with "in which" but 4 and 5 are simply run on sentences.

6. A flower shop is a shop where people buy the flower.
(What about this one? 'The' is used in this sentence before 'flower'.)

1. A flower shop is a shop where people buy flowers.

2. A flower shop is a shop where people buy a flower.

(Are they in generic use in both #1 and #2? I mean ' a flower' and 'flowers.')

  • English -

    2-2. A flower shop is a shop where people buy the flower.
    (Is it grammatical? Is 'the flower' is used in generic use? I mean: Can we use 'a flower,' 'the flower,' 'flowers' here? Are they all in generic use? I think the plural form is commonly used, though.)

  • English -

    2-2 is not correct. Grammatically, it's OK, but it doesn't make good sense.

    And yes, you're last sentence is right. Unless you go to a flower shop and buy only one gardenia or one orchid or one flower of any kind, you should use the plural form.
