    all sorts of

    I posted the thread on another forum but got no response. Please help me correct the following sentences. Thanks!

    We can see advertisements everywhere around us. There are all sorts of advertisements such as food, drinks, houses, car, clothes, shoes, etc. But I see the clothes advertisements the most.

    Re: all sorts of

    There is nothing actually wrong with those sentences. But to make them more natural I suggest "We can see advertisements everywhere around us. There are all sorts of advertisements for things such as food, drinks, houses, car, clothes, shoes, etc. But those I see most often are for clothing."

    Should 's' be added after 'car'?
