Hi! I am wondering which one as below is correct. Thank you.
#1 I don't have any problem now.
#2 I don't have any problems now.
Thank you for your response.
Could you elaborate the usages? Thanks in advance.
It really depends on the context whether you use "problem" or "problems". The singular will imply a specific problem, the plural a very general situation.
A: Is your telephone working again?
B: Yes, thank you. There is no problem with it now.
A: How are you? I haven't seen you since you had all those troubles last year.
B: I'm fine, thank. No problems, thank goodness.
Good morning, Anglika! Thank you for your answer. I understand.
Speaking the usage of single or plural, I have a funny experience I want to share.
I am a Customer Service(s) Manager, and Customer service manager is the title I put on all the correspondence. One day, my superior came and said he noted from a business card that he got from a Customer Service manager of other company the other day, and on the card, it states the title as Customer Services Manager. He asked me which one is right.
I was so hestiated to give him the answer as I was actually in doubt in which one is correct too.
The way I see it is, Customer Service is an adjective which describe Manager, so they shouldnt be added "s" on it. However, after reading this thread, I think I might be wrong.
Can anyone shed in light about this?
Since it is a job title, it can be either. There is no absolute rule for them.
