Something amiss with Adam


Joseph Shaer brought up this verse last night on QD and I wonder if anyone had any thoughts on it:
وَعَلَّمَ آدَمَ : He caused Adam to know
الأَسْمَاءَ كُلَّهَا : the names, all of them (literally ‘all of her’)
ثُمَّ عَرَضَهُمْ : then he aradha them
عَلَى الْمَلائِكَةِ : on the malaika

Who did Allah turn on to the malaika? Because its plural and Adam is one person..or is he?
