    Could you please help me with the two questions?

    1, What is the difference between "communication" and "communications"? Where should I use "communications"?
    2, "For the past years, doctors have tried to treat this disease with anticancer drugs, equivalent of a hammer, to beat down the body's defense forces."
    Is this a correct sentence? Can "equivalent" be used this way?

    Re: Could you please help me with the two questions?

    I am not a teacher.

    1, What is the difference between "communication" and "communications"? Where should I use "communications"?

    The first is singular, and I would think it refers to a communication between two persons, whilst the plural, communications, could refer to multiple communications within a network.


    2, "For the past years, doctors have tried to treat this disease with anticancer drugs, equivalent to using a hammer, to beat down the body's defences."

    Is this a correct sentence? Can "equivalent" be used this way?..YES.

    I hope this helps, as I am not a teacher, and what I have written are merely my thoughts. I too am learning every day on this site.
