    Dear all,

    When I say,

    "information will simultaneously be sent to PC and fax"

    is it correct grammar: "To pc and fax?" or "to a pc and a fax" or "to a pc and fax"?

    Thank you

    Thank you
    An article/determiner of some sort is needed. Since you're sending something to a fax, it may be better to say "the document" rather than "information" but I don't really know that without more context.

    The document will be sent simultaneously to your PC and fax.
    Information is sent simultaneously to the PC and fax on file.
    etc -- there are a few ways this could be said, and one may be better or one may be worse, depending on the entire context.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
