    By their design(s)?

    Dear Teachers

    In the following sentence, is it better to change "design" to "desgins" and "purpose" to "purposes" as different belts should have different desgn and purposes?


    Belts are a symbol of man's acceptance of mediocrity by their design and their purpose.

    Regards
