Trailing slash in url

    I got some problems in Console as trailing slash and without trailing slash makes duplicate content. Can you tell me which should I choose the best structure.
    domain.com/title
    or domain.com/title/
    or https://www.domain.com/title
    or
    https://www.domain.com/title/

    "/title" means the page.
    "/title/" means the main page of section.
    The difference is the same as between a folder and a concrete file in Windows.

    Leave off the last trailing slash. To a bot I believe it means "index.html" of the next folder.

    Thanks for your replies, Google console detected as it is duplicate so how can I remove the non trailing slash urls from Console.

    The most easy way do it via 301 redirect in .htaccess.
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^(.*)/$ /$1 [R,L]
    Code (ApacheConf):
    I hope it helps you.
