'For example' OR 'For examples'?

‘For example’ is considered as an idiom similar to ‘for instance’.
It can also be written in an abbreviation; e.g. (exempli gratia)

PLEASE TAKE NOTE!
Even though you have more than one example to be stated in your sentence, using ‘for examples’ instead of ‘for example’ is WRONG.
‘FOR EXAMPLE’ should always be expressed or stated WITHOUT ‘S’.
