mange and mangent

How can one tell the difference between 'il mange' and 'ils mangent'? When i listen they both sounde the same so there is no way of distinguishing whether it' s singular or plural?!!

Hello, In this form, there is no way to distinguish. Both solutions are accepted in the "listen" challenges (i.e. challenges where you have to type what you hear).
