>There is sufficient data and strong ideas that suggest we cannot justify...>There are sufficient data and strong ideas that suggest we cannot justify...Hey guys. Which sentence is correct in terms of grammar? English is not my first language, sorry for this.Would appreciate the help.
>>129404572nd one is better.
>>12940457Data is used as both an uncountable noun and as the plural of datum, so both are correct. However, using it as an uncountable noun is much more common, in both British and American English, so I would go with the first one.
>>12940481That said, the second one is probably more formal, so it's up to you. Most people would scan the first one and think nothing of it.
>>12940457Too wordy. Just say>We cannot justify X due to reasons.
>>12940479>>12940481>>12940503>>12940511Very kind. Thank you all.
Treat "single and single" as pluralTreat "single or single" as singularI think data is plural btw
