I have decided to log both these details.

I have used the above statement on Stackoverflow, but I was wondering if it is correct to say the following:

I have decided to log both information.


No, it is not. "Information" is not plural, so you cannot apply "both" to it.

Now, if you had said "I have decided to log both data", we might have some debate over "data".

  • Could you apply 'both' if you would say “both pieces of information“? Would it sound odd? – Harmless Psycho Mar 28 '17 at 4:15
  • Yes, "both pieces" is correct. – JeffSahol Mar 29 '17 at 8:20
