In Upgraded Spanish Level 3 Lesson 5 "Matching the Phrases" I see the use of both quiza and quizas. Is there any rule about singular vs plural objects or are these interchangeable for "maybe"?

According to the Royal Spanish Academy both are equally possible. quizá: Adverbio que expresa duda o probabilidad: «Neruda es un gran poeta. Quizá el más grande de todos los poetas» (Skármeta Cartero [Chile 1986]). Por analogía con otros adverbios acabados en -s, se creó la forma quizás, igualmente válida: «Quizás Casiana tenga razón» (Parrado 1905 [Cuba 1984]). Adverb expressing doubt or probability: "Neruda is a great poet. Perhaps (quiza) the greatest of all poets »(Skármeta Postman [Chile 1986]). By analogy with other adverbs ending in -s, the form was created and is equally valid: "Maybe (quizas) Casiana is right" (Parrado 1905 [Cuba 1984]).
