You suggest adding an article to correct this sentence? I believe the sentence should read "What kinds of problems can occur with some of the forms of communication? or What kind of problems can occur with some of the forms of communication? The sentence below is a quote out of a business text (british). I feel it is incorrect and am looking for the proper use of the plural in either word (problems or kinds).
What kinds of problem can occur with some of the forms of communication?
I agree with Tolley - it is awkward and lazy. The sentence would be much better with only one "of" in it. I'd also replace "some" because it implies that either the speaker believes not all forms of communication can have problems or that he is looking for an incomplete answer. But then again, maybe that is the case.
What problems can occur with the various forms of communication?
