#GrammarTrivia: One of Many Things

Hello, fellas!! How was your weekend?

Mine was plain. I came down with the flu and must stay at bed :(

The terrorist attack in Paris was one of many things going on over the weekend. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and families.

Now, let’s continue with our session. Today, we are going to talk about using ‘one of many things’ in sentence. #GrammarTrivia

Let’s check the following example. ‘One of many reasons why I love my job is because I get to travel a lot.’ #GrammarTrivia

Another example: Paris is one of the cities I’d like to visit someday. #GrammarTrivia

When you’re describing one of many countable nouns, the noun following ‘of’ should be written in plural form. #GrammarTrivia

In the first sentence, there are many reasons why ‘I love my job’. That’s why ‘reasons’ is written as plural noun. #GrammarTrivia

Same goes with the second sentence. ‘There are many cities I’d like to visit’ and ‘cities’ is also written in plural. #GrammarTrivia

To get a clearer view, let’s check out more examples. E.g.: Piano is one of many instruments she can play very well. #GrammarTrivia

E.g.: My boyfriend is one of many people who support me to get this scholarship. #GrammarTrivia

Okay, that’s what I’d like to share for today. Hopefully it can help brushing up your English :)

Now, it’s time for me to say bye. Wherever you are now, may you stay safe and sound. Good night, fellas!
