    how to use them?

    question 1
    :( 1. what 's the difference between them ?
    2. what are the differences between them?
    which one is correct?
    Is "difference" countable or uncountable ?

    :( question 2
    any differences (or difference ) between them ? see blow.

    1. forget it , forget about it
    2. a little bit , a bit , a bit of , a little ( eg. a little worried, a little bit worried)
    3. what would you like? how would you like?
    4. I'm tired of doing... , I'm sick of doing...

    They are both correct.
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    As Red said, you can say difference or differences.

    Absent context, I would say that in each case they mean the same thing.
