    Hi,

    Question:

    Which sentence is correct.

    Sentence1:
    I am responsible for preparing a range of fruits, such as apples, oranges and bananas.

    Sentence2:
    I am responsible for preparing a range of fruits, such as apple, orange and bananas.

    My opinion:
    Sentence1: the no. of each food I prepared is more than 1, so it is ok.
    Sentence2: I usd the word "apple" to represent all apples I preapred, so it is ok.

    thanks

    Variety sounds much better in my opinion. But there is nothing incorrect about range.
    I am responsible for preparing a variety of fruits, such as apples, oranges and bananas. Sentence #1 is correct.
