Policy(s) or Policies?

0

Is it right to use Policy(s)? The scenario is that in the menu of a program, users can select either one or more policies. So, is it Select Policies or Select Policy(s)?

I think it is more likely that options is the word you want.

 

Assuming, however, that the program is indeed asking the user to choose between different policies, your choice would depend on how many policies the user is obliged or able to select.

 

In the case where the user can select only one of two or more policies, the correct usage would be Select Policy.

 

In the case where the user must select at least two of three or more policies, the correct usage would be Select Policies.

 

In the case where the user can select one or more of three or more policies, a possible usage would be Select Policy/Policies.
