英文文法 the + 單數N = 複數?

請問一下,

有the + 單數N = 複數這種用法嗎?

For example:

The advantage are good for us to learn.

    1.版主,比較正確一點的說法,應該是「the 集合N = 複數」,比如people,從形式上看,people好像是單數,但這種類型的名稱,文法書通t常稱之為「集合N」,與你所稱的「單數N」是有點不同的。

    2.至於歐卡西所提的,「the 形容詞 = 複數名詞」,也是有這種用法。

    3.而歐卡西所提的例子:A horse is a useful animal = Horses are useful animals. 但不等於The horse is a useful animal.,最後一句的「the = this or that」,是指「特定的一匹馬」,兩者的意思是不同的。

    4.而本句應該要加【s】,The advantages are good for us to learn.

    那麼the advantage 也適用於那個文法嗎?
