    in (h) of ex 18, “beaks” should be written as ” beak” but ur answer is different. plz help😥😥

    Hi Sarthak,
    The subject from the beginning has been “owls”, means plural.In the present sentence also “the owl” has been universally indicated it is actually considered plural when used with “the”. So the correction u made is already correct. Tkanks for a nice suggestion.
