It would be very strange to use 'foundation' (singular) to refer generally to the substructure of a building. These are really plural- foundations.
I disagree. At least in my part of the world, we would say "the foundation of the house" or "the house's foundation". Perhaps it's a regional thing?
I agree. In Australia we would say "the house's foundations are not excellent"!
I don't agree. Unless there really are multiple foundations (it happens sometimes) it's just "foundation", especially with houses, regardless of if it's slab, pier-and-beam, or whatever.
Why is this sentence in this skill? Maybe it would fit better in a different one...
I agree!!! it can mislead
I put "foundations are not excellent". It was marked incorrect
Is 'fundament' used when you mean a charitable foundation, or just for the substructure of a building?
In English you would say ‘the foundation of the house’ as house is not alive
buildings have foundations, plural
Where I am it is singular. I've never heard plural for a singular house foundation until this comment section. "They are pouring the foundation for the house today." "The foundation of the house is bad and it needs to be replaced."
