    practical shape/form

    Hi teachers,

    "Thousands of residential schemes were implemented..." is better but I'd like to ask if "Thousands of
    of residential schemes were given a practical shape/form" can be used and which one is better: "shape" or "form"?

    Many 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.
