    Height

    Hi,

    I am afraid of heights.
    ( Why 'heights' in plural? what does it mean? Can it be singular? )

    Re: Height

    'Heights' means 'high places' like towers and clifftops.

    'Height' is a dimension, like 'length'.

    I can't imagine anybody being afraid of length.

    Re: Height

    1) We need to maintain the peak level sales.
    ( Can 'sale' in singular? any difference? )

    It's sales. We don't have just one sale, we hope.
