"Ils avaient fait..." 

"Il avait fait..." 

These two sentences sound same. Is there a way that we can understand the correct sujet?

Actually Murat, they do sound different as the first one ils (plural) will have a -z sound which is a mandatory liaison , sounding -

Il Z avaient fait

The second example il ( singular) has no ‘s’ so will sound -

I Lavait fait

Hope this helps!
