    Default Correct words

    When people are able to purify their mind/minds they will live more happily in their environment/environments.

    1. Should it be mind or minds?

    2. Should it be environment or environments?

    Thanks.

    1. Should it be mind or minds? Minds - we have one each.

    2. Should it be environment or environments? Both are possible. It depends on whether you think of all people living in one environment (i.e., that of the world) or of different (groups of) people living in different environments.
