    My answers. P.S. I am not a teacher
    1. Baggage and luggage mean the same thing. See the link Definition of baggage
    2. A number of suitcases may comprise your luggage / baggage.
    3. Baggage and Luggage are collective nouns and hence have no plural. The plural of suitcase is suitcases.

    Chocolate - the substance is uncountable. However, you can have chocolates - individual sweets made from chocolate and other ingredients.

    Words that are the same whether plural or singular:

    Sheep
    Deer
    Moose
