I "bhavā" inflection is too difficult

I had to search “Pali Table Pdf Bold Typeset”.

bhava: (state of) existence=> aorist. sg. bhavā (?)

bhava: (state of) existence=> nominative. sg. pl. masc. fem. bhavā (?)

‘‘Tayome, āvuso, bhavā – kāmabhavo , rūpabhavo, arūpabhavo’’ti.

I think bhavā is the plural for bhava which is a masculine noun ending in a. It has to be plural as it’s referring to three (tayo) states, ie “There are, friend, these three states of existence)…”
