    Default Re: takeover - is it a must to pay money?

    I used to own a bakery. My uncle took it over from me. He paid me 30,000 for it.

    (Please note that the above statement is not true!)
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    No, none is correct.

    Take all this equipment.
    Take some of this equipment.
    This a few pieces of this equipment.
    This piece of equipment is heavy.
    This equipment is heavy.

    It's like luggage. You don't have one luggage or two luggages. If you have one piece of luggage, you have a suitcase. If you have one piece of equipment, you have a [whatever the item is].
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
