I'd argue the "s" for "0" is actually correct. You don't say "Zero answer" or "No answer". But as for the rest... "Yes". –  Matt Aug 30 '13 at 12:51

Yeah, 0 answers is absolutely fine. 1 answers, on the other hand... if it weren't for that S... –  michaelb958 Aug 30 '13 at 13:01

The benefit to fix this just does not motivate the cost I believe. Not that we should care, IMHO it is a common workaround in programming to always use plural.
