Which sentence makes sense or is there any difference in meaning among these sentences?

1. She wiped a tear from her eye.
2. She wiped tears from her eye.
3. She wiped a tear from her eyes.
4. She wiped tears from her eyes.

I know 1. is right and makes sense but I suppose 4 is also right.
3 would be wrong because only one tear from two eyes is nonsense.Am I right?
2 shows "She" is crying seriously whereas 1 indicates "She" is crying lightly. but I'm not sure.

Could you be kind enough to tell the differences?

Thanks in advance.

AnonymousWhich sentence makes sense or is there any difference in meaning among these sentences?

1. She wiped a tear from her eye. One tear, one eye. It's an idiomatic way to say she was emotional.
2. She wiped tears from her eye. Many teasr, one eye. She probably has something in her eye that is making it water. No one cries from emotion from only one eye.
3. She wiped a tear from her eyes. As you say, doesn't make sense.
4. She wiped tears from her eyes. More idiomatic: She wiped the tears from her eyes. Yes, she'd been crying but now she's trying to stop.

I know 1. is right and makes sense but I suppose 4 is also right.
3 would be wrong because only one tear from two eyes is nonsense.Am I right?
2 shows "She" is crying seriously whereas 1 indicates "She" is crying lightly. but I'm not sure.

Many Thanks, Anonymous.

Could you let me ask one more?

Is it OK to say "She wiped the tear from her eye." ?

I hope Mr.Anonymous is reading this.
