    uncertainities

    Situation:

    In this contract asks me to pay 3000 dollars and a person who guarantee when I do not pay back the money.

    I have some uncertainities about the contract. I want to ask you about the two points.


    first question: what do you call a person who guarantee when I do not pay back the money.
    second question: Is uncertainity pluralized because there are two places I'm uncertain.

    thank you

    2. the plural 'uncertainties' is best used in a very general sense, as in 'the uncertainties of life', rather than 'two/three/a number of uncertainties'.
    It is better to phrase it:
    "I am/I'm uncertain about something (that you said)."
    "I am/I'm uncertain about a couple of things..."
    "I have/There are a number of things I am still uncertain about." (and then you go on to talk about them).
