    No, it's pretty much incomprehensible...and I'm afraid I really don't understand what you mean well enough to correct it. Maybe someone else does.

    He could mean, "Most of them are recently ordered and are requested to draw one carton for each customer".

    Sorry for going away from the actually raised doubt. Even I am unable to comprehend it. However, i could find a doubt in the above sentence. How is the part in bold differs from 'haven't got a clue'? Please explain.

    Thanks,
    Kiran

    Both are correct.

    1. I haven't got a clue
    2. I haven't a clue


    Also, "I don't have a clue."

    Ok.

    Again, here I get another doubt: the verb have here used to state the possession or belonging. Then, in that case, why is the need to use another verb 'got' as main verb?

    The "got" is not necessary, it's just the way that many, many people say it.
