Hello,

"The minutes of the meeting" is plural or singular?

1) After Susan types the minutes, she sends it to her boss.

2) After Susan types the minutes, she sends them to her boss.

Which is correct?

Thank you in advance,

Both the 2 sentences sound weird. What do you mean by 'types the minutes'? Emotion: hmm
Hi Filha Da Pika,

"the minutes" is a plural noun.

After Susan takes/does the minutes, she sends them to her boss.

Hmm, may I know the meaning of 'types the minutes'?

Thanks. Emotion: smile
Hi Spectacled-Girl,

I guess it means the same thing as 'take the minutes' expect one might be emphazising that the minutes are not hand written. She might be typing the minutes out with a typewriter or a computer, which is the norm nowadays.

I would understand that the minutes taken at meetings are done in rough or shorthand form, and that the secretary later types them up in a more formal format before she sends them to her boss.
