"We are monkeys and we want bananas."

Translation:Chúng tôi là những con khỉ và chúng tôi muốn chuối.

Does "chúng tôi muốn chuối" not say "We want banana", rather than the plural?

And why can we omit the classifier for banana, yet not for monkeys?

Would be redundant.

Is the plural marker really needed before monkeys? Wouldn't that be more like 'we are the monkeys'?
