Hi, could you tell me if it is possible to use "matter" in plural in this sentence? "We can't know who is more prepared for a job or a matter / or some matters". Thanks.

    Please give us some context, Peterpant. In what situation would you say this? What do you want "matter" or "matters" to mean here?

    We still need more specific information.
    What sort of problem/problems do you have in mind?

    (Generally, I wouldn't say someone was 'prepared for a matter'. I would use a different verb or a different construction.)
