children and child
‘ They have no children’
why would it be ‘children’ instead of ‘child’?
No is normally followed by plural countable nouns. It sounds more natural.
No vehicular accidents were reported this month.
No may be followed by a singular noun or plural nouns, depending on whether one is thinking of one or more than one.
"Sometimes, it is more natural to combine singular and plural use:
He must lead a lonely life in that village: he has no wife and no children. (A man normally has one wife, but often has more than one child!)"
