correct noun form [cost of repair] [cost of a repair] or [cost of repairs]

Post by ansonman »

I have made up the sentences below.

(1) My stove is not working. I want to buy a new one because the cost of repair is very high.

(2) My stove is not working. I want to buy a new one because the cost of a repair is very high.

(3) My stove is not working. I want to buy a new one because the cost of repairs is very high.

I am not sure which noun form is correct. Thank you for your help.

All possible, but (1) is the most natural.
