    usages of "challenge"

    Hi,

    I would like to know how to use the word "challenge".

    I got some examples of sentences.

    I think all 6 usages could be correct, but want to hear some opinios, and discuss

    Sentence1:
    One of the challeges facing our clients is the high production cost.
    Sentence2:
    One of the challeges for our clients is the high production cost.
    Sentence3:
    One of the challeges of our clients is the high production cost.
    Sentence4:
    One of the challeges facing our clients is to reduce the the production cost.
    Sentence5:
    One of the challeges for our clients is to reduce the the production cost.
    Sentence6:
    One of the challeges of our clients is to reduce the the production cost.


    Thanks

    'facing' and 'for' are better than 'of' for these examples.
