Hello Jeremy,  I'm so sorry for that,coz it's my first time to use your page.mimi-516

Hello wonderful Team, thank you for prompt response, last night I read an article, the writer used the word water in plural form, i.e he wrote (waters), now, is it possible to say such expression?
Thanks

(Do ( Abdurrahman is my elder brother) and ( Abdurrahman is my older brother
have the same meaning?

Hello zagrus!
 
Yes, that's right, but elder is a little old fashioned these days - we're more likely to just say older.

Hi, I have a question, the word information always confuses me, can it be in plural form (informations) or it is only in singular form?

Hello Adil,
'Information' is uncountable, so we don't say 'informations', except in a very specific legal situation that 99.9% of people will never encounter. You can talk about 'pieces of information' etc.

Hello
Could you explain to me what the difference between " each other"  and " one another" When I see a sentence  about this,  I don't decide which one is convenient for the sentence. Thank you so much.

If the subject is singular and the object is plural,how can i use apostrophe?
eg.The boy cars
