    more questions :) pls very urgent

    1- i want to know if all verbs take "s" with "he" for example: he chooses... (All the verbs takes the "s" ??? or there are some exeptions???? for example can we say he accesses??)

    2- What is the difference between Whether and either???
    Are they used for the same meaning for example :


    3- Can we say : the user will choose whether the X is for production or optimization ( here we can't say "if" instead of " "whether" right??)
    ( can we use with 'whether" 2 different words like production and optimization or we have to use with whether "Or not" which means: whether the X is for production or not ( but "not" will not be useful here because i have to define the second word( optimization).

    - can we say : the application can be implemented by ( or 'in"?)any type of retailers whether centralized or mixed or local ( or we use either here??)

    - when we use either for the choices between 3 choices : i want to eat either chocolate or milk or strawberry ( it's right to say 2 times "or"??)

    3-"on a weekly basis" means that something will happen once each week. right?

    4- can we use "The" with plural noun : the values??

    5- we say : the selected role or the role selected??

    6-when we say the X or the Y are (or is) responsible?

    7- "greater" and "higher" are the same
    " less" and "lower". we can use one of the 2 values, or greater nad less are for numbers and higher and lower for levels??

    8- "if" is only used when there's a condition??

    9- do we say: the last time i saw them from (or without from) 2 months ago??

    10- we say : u didn't tell me what r u ( or u r) doing.

    thank you!

    Re: more questions :) pls very urgent

    [1] Yes, but only if the verb is the main verb and it is in the present tense.

    [2] The user will choose whether (or not) X is for production or optimization; The user will choose if X is for production or not.

    [3] The application can be implemented by any type of retailer, whether centralized, mixed or local.

    [4] I want either chocolate or strawberry.

    [5] On a weekly basis means once a week or weekly.

    [6] The values

    [7] The selected role (here 'selected' is emphasized) The role selected (here 'role' is emphasized)

    [8] X or Y is responsible

    [8] "greater", "higher", "less", "lower" It depends on the context, the sentence they sit inside.

    [9] No. Ex: If he's here, I don't see him; Ex: He's not a dunce, if a trifle stupid.

    [10] The last time I saw them was 2 months ago.

    [11] You didn't tell me what you were doing.

    Are they used for the same meaning for example :
    For definitions you can consult an online dictionary. (www.onelook.com/)

    Please note that it is customary when using "for example" for the writer to supply an example.

    One question mark per question is enough.

    This is a public forum, and it will be easier for others to follow the thread if you limit the number of questions. (It is difficult to follow a thread with so many questions. I am already having trouble.)

    Since it is not a life or death matter, I doubt that you need to put "urgent" in the title.

    "On a weekly basis" means "one or more times a week".
