Synonyms of "Reduction" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between What is the reduction amount if we do this? and How much reduction can we make if we do this? ?
A: These two sentences both mean the same thing, but they are a little unclear about *what* is being reduced. Based on your extra information, it looks like money.

Some better ways to ask this:
How much (money) will we save if we do this?
What will be the reduction in price/cost if we do this?
How much will the price/cost decrease if we do this?
How much can prices/costs be cut by doing this?

"Cost" is more appropriate if you are asking about how much less you will have to pay to suppliers.

"Price" is more appropriate if you are asking about how much less you will have to charge customers.
Q: What is the difference between reduction and contraction ?
A: I think reduction is mostly used for numbers/amount while contraction is mostly used for size
Q: What is the difference between reduction and decrease ?
A: 1 - Reduction is a Noun while decrease is a Verb.

Reduce is the the verb form of reduction.

2 - usually Reduction is an action taken.

example "Let's talk about pesticide reduction."

Decrease is usually something that just happens.

example."There's been a decrease in population".

saying "There's been a reduction in population" implies there was a specific action taken to kill the population.

p.s but in actuality unless your talking to an English professor I don't think anyone would care if you interchange them XD.

1. I'd like to know if the sentence is commonly used.

A: I don’t know why but I don’t hear anybody saying this. It sounds like you are talking about costs. Here are some phrases that are commonly spoken and heard regarding costs.

1. Can you give me a discount?

Sometimes, context is very important. I might say that the phrase is a little unnatural, but after seeing context, I’m might be like, “ok. Yes, that makes sense now”.
