    Re: Means vs mean

    Sentences 2 and 4 are incorrect. (I assume that your question would have been about that, had you actually asked one.)
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer

    Should I be using "Means" in all the sentences?.
