      ‘Information’, ‘equipment’ and others listed here are uncountable nouns and cannot be plural by their selves without quantifiers. These aren’t examples of plural nouns with ‘s’ like words such as ‘children’ or ‘sheep’

    It’s not Informations, its information.
    It’s not equipments, it’s equipment.
    It’s not furnitures, its furniture.
    Similarly, few words i could remember,
    It’s not dirts, it’s dirt.
    It’s not datas, it’s data.

    Or you could say, the meaning stays,
    A piece of information OR some information.
    A piece of equipment
    A piece of furniture.

    and so on..
