    use of 'any' and plural numbers

    1. Should words following 'any' be in singular or can it also be plural? Which of the following is correct please?

    a) Any other question?
    b) Any other questions?

    2 When we sign of cheques, do we use singular or plural for numbers such as the following:

    a) Four thousand three hundred dollars
    b) Four thousands three hundreds dollars


    Thank you

    Both are correct.

    2 When we sign of cheques, do we use singular or plural for numbers such as the following:

    a) Four thousand three hundred dollars <- This one. I put a comma after thousand.
    b) Four thousands three hundreds dollars


    Thank you

    Re: use of 'any' and plural numbers

    PS - Greenfly, welcome to Using English. We're glad to have you.

    It would help, though, if in your future posts, you would ask only one question at a time. Threads can get confusing if people respond to an answer to one question and then to the answer to another question.

    Thanks!
    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.
