comment What is the meaning of “la/une majorité” with “de” or “des”?
Thanks. I see the your point. Can you please elaborate on your last line? My question was une majorité de/une majorité des/la majorité des. Last one is okay but not the first two. Merci beaucoup

And also, won't you use the word plupart to mean simple majority?

I see what you mean. But if you say "Au Québec, on aime Céline Dion", you are likely to be from Quebec, no?

I think these two statements are equivalent in meaning: One should be kind or we should be kind. So I am not sure whether I understand your comment. I suppose you are confusing the meaning of “one” in English. Please note that I do not refer to it in the sense of number one.

comment Use of “avoir” in “nous avons regardé”
@Laure: From what I understand conjugation are a verb taking different forms in different situations (be it tense or person). Passé composé is a particular case of conjugation.

comment Use of “avoir” in “nous avons regardé”
The OP is puzzled why avoir is used in past tense or why/why not it should be exluded. My answer should not be seen as a difference between passé composé and imparfait but rather when you can/cannot use avoir while describing action in the past
