comment Most of the books explain it + singular or plural
it refers to the notion being explained. What is difficult to understand? It is not the books. It is what is explained therein. Btw, you've written explian instead of explain.

comment “I'm not X, am I?” vs. “I'm not X, do I?”
I just wanted to point out to the phrase "Aren't I?" but it only fits contexts like "I am making sense, aren't I?" and is a synonym to "am I not?".

comment Alternative word for “arguably better”
"Moot" is a nice word although might not be exactly what you're looking for. You can say that something is a "moot point" or "moot practices" and so on...

comment What is the meaning of 'is' in this sentence?

comment Where were “should”, “shall”, and “must” in the 18th Century?
@PeterShor: NGram is a fine tool, but what about a more mechanistic interpretation or the data... It seems to me that there is continuous decline the use of all these words after 1825 which is an absurd. What has replaced their use? What has come up in lieu of "will" or "shall"? Do people use the future tense less and less? (Maybe it suggests a manifestation of massive pessimism... )

comment Appropriate preposition to go with “concerned”
Concerned is usually followed by "about" although "with" and "on" are also grammatically correct (and "in" with a different meaning). Regarding "for" I'm not sure but you can check the usage diagram at goo.gl/3qHfP...
