    Dear Teacher,here is a sentence from the latest Newsweek:"By showing them upsetting, fearful photos and monitoring their response, we discovered that how well and how quickly a person is able to bounce back from adversity has nothing to do with..."After all, I can translate this sentence to hungarian, but I don't understend grammatically the connections between the parts of this sentence, especially when it say without comma:"we discovered that how... " which firstly suggests that we discovered how (the things are...), meanwhile,the real content is: we discovered that, something has nothing to do with something. Could you explain this sentence for me!Thank you very much, and sorry for my poor English.Best regards from Hungary:Pet. Szigeti

    Welcome to the forim, Péter.

    "By showing them upsetting, fearful photos and monitoring their response, we discovered that X has nothing to do with..."

    X ="how well and how quickly a person is able to bounce back from adversity".
