The classifier 'người' is not necessary here and should not be forced to be included, according to my Vietnamese friends.

"Người nông dân dùng nhiều lưỡi liềm" should also be added to the list of correct answers!

Should “nông dân dùng nhiều cái liềm” be accpeted?

I really have a hard time knowing when to include người with professions and when not. Sometimes it seems we have to use it, sometimes we cannot, and sometimes we can choose to use it or not. Any insight would be very helpful.

Hmm, is 'cái' required here, could it be 'nhiều liềm?
