Would "Girls, guys?" also be accepted? (When I speak English I usually use guys instead of boys, it could be incorrect though)

Would "Girl, boys" also be accepted? (So 'girl' would be in the singular, while 'boys' is obviously plural)

This would work, too, in this context, since you can't distinguish the number of girls in the german sentence. Also, this is actually used: Mein Herr, meine Damen, würden Sie mir bitte folgen? - Sir, Ladies, would you follow me please?

Ok, thanks. I was just asking because I (for some reason) happened to answer "Girl, boys" but got the answer wrong. Thanks for your explanation, it's very helpful!

Are Jungs and Jungen interchangeable? Or do they mean different things in different contexts?
