    Red face Correct Usage

    Sir,


    I would like to know whether the sentences "Reasons for violence" or "Reason of violence" is correct.

    Please explain me with reasons to the above question.

    Thanks a lot.

    Re: Correct Usage

    Neither is a sentence. In a sentence '(the) reasons for (the?) violence' is more likely to be correct.
