    Exclamation Type or Kind

    Please correct my sentence below.


    Although he is very tough type of persons, he shows sentimental feeling towards him.

    Are the words, type. persons and sentimental presented right?

    What if I changed type with kind?

    Although he is very tough kind of persons, he shows sentimental feeling towards him

    Or removing type/kinds looks better

    Although he is very tough person. he shows sentimental feeling towards him


    Thanks you.

    Re: Type or Kind

    In this context, type and kind are very close synonyms. There is nothing to choose between them.
