Why is one singular and zero plural?
For example, when counting down apples, you would say "I have 2 apples", "I have 1 apple", and "I have 0 apples". This makes no sense to me, why would you use the plural form if you have none of something?
The value zero, not the word "zero". You would also say "I have no apples" but the same problem is still there.
