Is 'de' generally used for nouns in their plural form - regardless of whether the singular is neuter (het meisje) or not?

What is the difference between eet and eten?
Eet is singular (I,You, He/She/It) and eten is plural (We, You, They)

The translation tool tip gives 'de meisjes hun' as a translation for 'the girls', but gives me an error when I try to submit the answer
Well "hun" translates to "their" so it wouldnt make much sense in this case
It always tells me that I've written 'de' the wrong way but I have not
Why is it de meisjes now instead of het meisjes?
