Hi all,

Suppose I want to refer to chapter 1 and chapter 2 of a book. I may have

(a) In chapters 1 and 2, the author...
(b) In chapter 1 and 2, the author...

I guess (a) is correct, right?

Then suppose I want to refer to three or more chapters using "-". I may have

(c) In chapters 1-3, the author...
(d) In chapter 1-3, the author...

I think I saw people using (d) rather than (c), but I am not sure. Can someone explain to me?

    I would also only use Chapters here (and I would capitalise <C> as well). Otherwise, repeat the word.

    In Chapter 1 and Chapter 2, ...
    In Chapters 1 and 2, ...
