@wlin4023,
Stop asking other people to do your homework.

It should be clear that the question isn't seeking a simple "either/or" answer, but, rather, an insight into the topic questioned: You might have an opinion about the quantity of Aristotle's categories; but it is far more important that you show your understanding of the grounds upon which Aristotle based his categorical distinctions...your opinions on the subject are secondary.

@wlin4023,
First of all one must answer these questions: can one ever truly have too many categories? That is, what constitutes an ample number of categories? What was Aristotle's frame of mind as he willy-nilly gathered unto himself a bounty of categories?

And most importantly of all: Can I have this paper finished Monday AM?
