I wrote this sentence.

We study large-scale graphs with a high density or with high density?

Which one is right? Thanks in advance!

What I meant to say was that the common attribute(high density) belongs to the entire plural noun(graphs). Not just one of the plural noun (1 graph)!

We'd say:

"All the trees have leaves!"

We'd not say

"All the trees have a leaf!" Do we?

  • How could the high density refer to the subject in either option? That doesn't make any sense! – curiousdannii Feb 13 '15 at 9:13
  • It depends on your context of understanding. Please refer below: – Mass Kent Feb 13 '15 at 9:33
