    aspect or aspects?

    Hi,

    Question:
    1: Do I use “aspect(s)" correctly?
    2: Should I say “aspect or aspects”

    Sentence1:
    I am interested in the technical aspect / aspects of accounting work in the business field, for example, financial analysis.
    Sentence2:
    I am interested in the non-technical aspect / aspects of accounting work in the business field, for example, advising clients on their financial strength.



    My opinion:
    I am not sure whether people treat each technical area separately or not.
    If not, “aspect” should be used.

    Thanks

    Re: aspect or aspects?

    Since the sentences provide examples, "aspect" should be plural.
    The technical aspect of something refers to all technical aspects as opposed to the non-technical aspects.
