    Use of 'input'

    Hi,

    Which of the following sentences sounds the best and why? I am confused about the use of the word 'input'.

    1. I will write the final version after Ann and John have provided input.

    2. I will write the final version after Ann and John have provided their input.

    3. I will write the final version after Ann and John have provided inputs.

    4. I will write the final version after Ann and John have provided an input.

    Thanks,

    MG.

    input=feedback (uncount)
    My choice would be (1), or (2) if you wish to emphasise THEIR input.
