The average adult has got from 1 to 5 colds each year.
Is this a correct sentence?
Can I change it to "An/The average adult get from 1 to 5 colds each year"?
Thank you very much.

    Indeed, I think you can use both.
    However, I'd always use 'The' in this context, and I don't think I'd do so alone.

    Yours sincerely,
