    classify

    Hi,

    Suppose:
    I needed to research on company shares and then give a presentation about what are company shares.

    I googled it, and downloaded many articles and news.
    I bought some books about company shares.


    Question:
    Can I use "information" in the following sentence?

    Sentence:
    When I reseached on company shares, I would classify the infomation I found by topics, eg, what is company shares, reasons for buying shares, and how to buy.

    Thanks

    Your use of 'information' is right. But general you don't write a "When ..., I would ..." sentence*.
    Try this:
    If I..., I would... (present)
    When I ..., I will ... (future)
    When I ..., I did (or I <verbed>)... (past)
    Whenever I ..., I would...; or I did (or I <verbed>) (past).

    *If you've used "When" to mean "whenever" your original sentence could be right, but it doesn't sound right by itself.
