#EngQAs – Question #2: Can you help @sartikaarga and explain when to use “is” or “are” behind the word “there”?

Thank you for your participation Littleelephant Childdevelopmentcenter (@fiiixie), Rizki Wardana, Nass Razak, Christopher Arie, and Nurmala Syahbani.
Great job and excellent explanation, fellas! I believe it is now clear when to use “there is” and “there are”. :)
As discussed and shared, “There is” is used for a singular noun whereas “there are” is used for a plural noun.
There is an apple in the bag.
There are apples in the bag.
In translation, “there is/are” literally means “terdapat”. :)
