Can the noun information be plural? Is it correct to write "the following information are"?
Approved answer (verified by )
Information is always singular.
But I find it interesting that you asked. Is it different in your language?

In Portuguese we can use as singular or plural meaning. Informação >> singular (uma informação, a informação (= "an information", "the information"). Informações >> plural (umas informações, as informações (= "informations", "the informations").
