Which sentence is correct?
It is the only criteria they use when making decisions.
in making decisions.
Could anyone explain me what the difference between these two sentences is, and which one is correct. Thank you.
The most correct is the first sentence, ending in 'when making decisions'. To me, 'in making decisions' doesn't make a lot of sense.
I want to note, however, that criteria is one of those funny irregular nouns that come to us from Latin. The noun 'criteria' is plural. The singular of this is 'criterion'. Your sentence should read:
It is the only criterion they use when making decisions.
