    Exclamation Help please!

    Hi there,

    I've got several questions to ask you:

    -Can we say "on my laps" or does this have to be always singular? (ie: on my lap)?

    -Can we say: "I've had a dog but now it's dead? or is it better to say: I had a dog but now it's dead"?

    -Can we say: "I had to travel by train during 12h and I read all along"?

    -Can we say "false money" or is it better to say "fake money"

    Thanks

    A person's 'lap' is the flat area between the waist and knees of a seated person . We only have one per person, so it can only be 'on my lap'.

    I had a dog but now it's dead" is correct

    "I had to travel by train on the 12h and I read all the way."

    We say, 'counterfeit money', and colloquially, 'fake money', and, 'that note is a fake'
