The pronunciation of "plus" in de plus en plus in the last example (J'ai de plus en plus de mal à me concentrer.) has 's' in both the plus
Is this correct? Because in all other examples only the plus has 's' prononuced as it is followed by vowel 'e'.
This relates to:De plus en plus de and de moins en moins de = more and more and less and less (comparisons of nouns) -

Thanks for pointing this out, you can actually say both ...

Not always but in the expression 'de plus en plus' you can say:
De pluz en plu or de pluz en plusse...
The first 's' is pronounced as a 'z' because of the compulsory liaison and the second 's' can be pronounced or not.
Hope this helps!
