    question

    If we say "Nuclear energy is very dangerous but the industries use it for making profit." Is it correct??or should I say industries without the use of the definite article?

    Re: question

    You have a problem with "for making profit" as well.

    to make a profit.
    to make profits.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
