Namaste,
Dear members.

Here is a sentence where the book says to use "rations have" instead of "ration has".

- Ration has run out and the district magistrate has been informed.

Please tell me what is the difference between "ration" and "rations", or when should I use each of them.


Thanks in advance. :)

    'Ration' is not used as a mass noun; it's always a count noun: one person's ration of sugar has been used up; or our rations have run out.
