I would like to seek your advice on the following phrases:
1) There are masses and masses of clouds in the sky.
- Is that meant many groups of clouds such as cumulonimbus, sirrus, cumulus and so on?
- 'cloud' is singular. Is 'masses of cloud' more suitable. (such as food and foods have diffrerent meanings?)
2) i saw masses and masses of food are wasted.
- '...are wasted' refers to piles of food (more than one pile), is it correct?
3) There are many 'types of flowers' or 'types of flower'.
- Is there any difference in the meanings of which?

question: what do you mean 'general' ? can you give me more example.
