I'm not an english-speaker, but I think "fishes" is an acceptable form. And the question still reads "a fish", not "two fish".

Well, as a native Virginian I can tell you it used to be spelled "Potomack" and "Potowmack" on old colonial-era maps. The Indians who named it didn't really have much of a writing system, so the English spelled it different ways at different times, based on what the word sounded like to them.

Prosecutor represents the state and in trials with a prosecutor there's no defendant. Plaintiff is the person in a civil case who is sueing the defendant. So no.

WHAT DO YOU mean that in trials with a prosecutor, there is no defendant? Who, then, is the prosecutor prosecuting? I believe you mean that in a trial where there is a prosecutor, the plaintiff is the State, not an individual.
+1
level 47
Oct 16, 2018
Yeah, I think you mean there's no plaintiff. Civil and criminal cases both have defendants. In civil cases they're being sued by a plaintiff; in criminal cases they're being tried by the prosecution.
