I've been working on this document so long that I've gone cross-eyed and can't see this straight any more!

I used advice from my accountant and my business mentor to help myself resolve any uncertainties.

It needs to be clear that the accountant and mentor did not resolve the uncertainties, but that I went to them for expert advice, and used that to solve the uncertainties myself.

REALLY URGENT!

Oh, if anyone has any better ideas for wording they are welcome, but the word count has to stay about the same (maybe one or two more).

Hi, Nona! I think you can get by without either pronoun. It should be clear that "you" did the work by using "used". Ta back at ya'.
Thanks, I ended up solving the problem by re-phrasing it completely. Job applications - ugh this was a total stinker of a form. 6 mini-essays to write! I've just emailed everything over and I need to go and have a nice quiet lie-down now...

Hi there,

Does that sound good? I thought it should be "uncertainty", singular...

Well, I suppose there could be more than one.

Part of the question was 'how did you resolve any uncertainties' so I copied their format.
Umm, CalifJim was right then...
It seems in many cases nobody cares if you use a plural or singular noun after "any". Provided you don't say "Do you have any sister"... I would have used "uncertainty", singular, I guess it would have been good as well. Emotion: smile

I know what you mean, Kooyeen! In this case there is, to me at least, a very subtle shade of difference between uncertainty and uncertainties. I'm going to try and explain it, but it's a bit of a slippery fish in my mind, so bear with me!

"any uncertainty" feels like it refers to a vague feeling of doubt, of something not being quite right, something nebulous. The sort of thing that you would overcome by deciding to be bold, to go ahead despite the unknown outcome.

"any uncertainties" feels a bit more specific, and a bit more like a euphemism for 'problem' or 'disagreement'. The sort of thing that you would overcome by asking someone to clarify for you.
