study or studies

A student's work is their study or studies? About "study", when do we use plural and when singular? 

Hi, Ruifeng,

I don't recommend using either one. I recommend using an infinitive:

  • A student's work is to study.

But if you must choose between "study" and "studies," choose "studies." With "study," their would be the sense that students study work, i.e., that they make a study of work.
