    'information' -

    Please help:

    A designer can make use of QFD to determine what kinds of information, such as the key requirements, etc. should be used and transport them to sensor memory as external design task information.

    Thanks

    I do not understand what your question is.

    Two minor changes will make it a little clearer.

    If there's a line or a text in one's post, it usually means it is posted to be corrected (until told otherwise).

    Yes, though the original post, as far as I could see, was hardly in need of correction at all. That was why I didn't understand.

    Re: 'information' -

    Sorry, I tried to ask a queation about whether plural or single should be used if the subject is 'information'. Here is an example:

    I have various information, which are obtained from that database.

    I am not sure whether should use "are" or "is".

    Thanks for your help.

    Your sentence did not have "is" or "are" in it.

    Information is uncountable, so takes "is". On the other hand "various pieces of information" takes "are", so you would say: I have various bits / pieces of information which are obtained from that database.

    monty mike, I took Anglika's example, which had the form, hence deletion.
