comment Plural or singular in many nouns expression
Both are possible depending on what is meant. If the reference is to the set of solutions of the specific type, then it's singular. OTOH, if the reference is to the solutions of the type, then it's plural.

comment to adjust a red to a blue
That's litcrit. Not much about the English language per se. (Why do I say that?)
2d
comment to adjust a red to a blue
Perhaps, it's metaphorical, red for anger ("frustrated fury") vs. blue for sadness. In any case, a broader context is needed as it is literary.

For instance, I'm a content writer who's never content.

comment Can I use the same preposition twice after the verb?
Rephrasing is not an answer :)

comment Can I use the same preposition twice after the verb?
@tchrist Just because it forms part of a phrasal verb, the for here does not cease to be a preposition by itself I think. See also my comment above.

comment Can I use the same preposition twice after the verb?
Yes. There's no grammatical bar on successive prepositions. However, OP could look for a better example because provided for is a phrasal verb as a whole, though technically it comprises of a verb and the preposition for.

comment Should I place a comma or “and” between the adjectives “frequent” & “new”?
1. I feel this has been already dealt with on this site. 2. There are subtle differences between using a comma, "and/&" and none in a list of adjectives, especially depending on context. In the OP's example, without knowing the context, no comma seems necessary.
