A question about of
Is "of" correct in this sentence:
Students want to get the best grade they possibly can without having to make unduly unnecessary sacrifices of their extracurricular activities.
Re: A question about of
I don't like the above sentence. Using the noun "sacrifices" and "of" sounds odd. The sentence is also too wordy; the grammar is much too wordy and "possibly" is unnecessary.
