In theory it's quite easy to dynamically generate queries at runtime based on a parameter, but not a lot of GraphQL clients handle it well. It's not so much about the clients, but all the tooling around it like generators, editor integrations and the opportunity to leverage persistent queries.

Using plural instead of singular arguments will allow your clients to use static queries for situations where they usually would need dynamic ones.
