文法問題-thoughts,while

It is unavoidable that the gap of thoughts exists between the two generations. The young are aggressive, while the old are conservative.

兩代之間思想上的差距是不可避免的。年輕人較為進取,年老的人則較為保守。

1.thoughts的用法?think的過去式及過去分詞,但為什麼可加複數"s"?

2.while的用法?可以用and 或不加嗎?

請幫忙解答,謝謝~

    1. "thought" here is used as a noun, when it means "思想", it needs to be in plural. It is also used as "past participle", then it cannot be in "plural".

    2. "and" is to connect two things that are the same or equal, yet "while" can connect two things that are somewhat opposite. If you don't like to use "while" here, you can also use "but". It will make the contrast stronger, and "while" makes it softer in contrary.
