Hello everyone. It has been a long time since I posted. Since my last post I have been working hard on improving my vocabulary and writing skills.
I still have trouble understanding and using some words, mainly nouns ending in ity like the word conformity. I have written a few sentences using this word, but I am unsure if I am using it correctly. I am convince that I am using the first two sentence correctly--A &B but I am not to sure about C&D.

Conformity. N. being like other things or people

In this definition does people refer to a group or can it mean a single person (being like someone).

A. John’s conformity has gotten out of control that he doesn’t know who he is anymore.

B. Judge Mathew told the plaintiff he hated conformity and to be himself.

C. In conformity to the Mexican mafia gang, Tony started dressing and acting like them.

D. The conformity of his clothes to Elvis is evident.

Conformity could be applied to a group or an individual. A sub group could conform to a larger group. An individual could conform to a group. Hey, it's possible that a group could conform to an individual if that individual has some type of authority over that group.

A. John's conformity has gotten so out of control that he doesn't know who he is anymore. (Add so, and you're good to go!)

B. You're using conformity right, but you have other issues in that sentence because it could be misunderstood to be saying that the judge hates conformity and that he hates to be himself.

C. That's a very awkward usage. I don't think it would be accepted for publication or anything formal. Conforming to the Mexican mafia gang, Tony started dressing and acting like them.

D. No, I don't think that works. I don't even know what you're trying to say. Are you trying to say that Elvis' clothes conformed to the shape of his body?
C. In conformity to the Mexican mafia gang's rules, Tony started dressing and acting like them.

D. His conformity to the Elvis style clothing is evident.

In these sentences you need to tell what the conformity is to. (Ick what a sentence! but I think you know what I mean)

Hi,
conformity actually means to try to fit in with everyone ;example;he did not raise his hand in class,but everyone else did raise their hand No, this is nonconformity, because he did something that the others did not do.

Conformity is eg he raise his hand in class because everyone else in class raised their hands.
