    Smile only in this way/these ways?

    "It is urgent to solve this problem. First of all, we must... Second, we should... Moreover, we should... Only in this way / these ways can we solve this problem."

    Which of the underlined should I choose? the singular form or the plural one?
    Besides, is there any better expression?
    Thank you.

    Re: only in this way/these ways?

    You have listed three ways.

    One - singular.

    More than one - plural.
