I almost made a mistake to use people instead of persons. Does everybody know when can I use people instead of person (Plural). Thank you.
Most of the time the words are interchangeable.
There are many people in the world.
There are many people at the party.
People, I think is used more as a group, whereas persons is more individual.
There are two persons/people who are suspects in the current murder investigation.
There are many people/persons who hold a responsible position in the company.
If a photographer is taking a photo of a group, he/she could say, "Would the "people" in the second row please stand a little more together."
Or, "would the person at the end of the second row, please step forward"
