"The men eat."
Translation:Los hombres comen.
Yep, that's the plural for men. Nevertheless this is more specific. "The boys" could also be "ellos", but they're not men precisely.
katstr, el is singular and we are talking about MEN. look at it this way, if you have a noun that ends in an "s", the article will most likely NEVER be "el" or "la"
Moha..., comen because men would take the 3rd person plural verb as if to say "they". so they eat is ellos comen
