      • You correct my sentence as below:
        Mothers are usually likely the first confidants of anybody.
        I think “confidante” is the best choice for this sentence. Because it refers to “Mothers” and it should be singular due to “the first”.

        • You’re right about “confidante” as the feminine noun. However, after “the first” and “the last”, you could also use a plural noun. E.g. the first days of school were rather horrifying. You should also note that confidantes refers to “mothers”, which is plural.
          Thanks for asking.

            • Yes, it was intentional. Consider the following example:
              Correct: This is the book I was talking about.
              Incorrect: This is the book I was talking abut it.
              The same principle applies to this sentence. “It” should be omitted because we’ve already talked about it in the same sentence.
              Thanks for asking. It shows you’re paying specific attention to the details.
