    what kind of questions or what kinds of questions

    Hi,

    *self-made sentences*

    - Will you tell us what kind of questions you will ask on the exam?
    - Will you tell us what kinds of questions you will ask on the exam?

    I cannot decide which one is OK to use - kind or kinds. Could you please tell me?

    Thanks.

    Re: what kind of questions or what kinds of questions

    Both are fine and mean the same thing.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    Re: what kind of questions or what kinds of questions

    "What kind of questions" suggests that the questions will all be of the same kind/type.
    "What kinds of questions" suggests that there will be a variety of kinds/types.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
