    odds

    After rescuing assassination, Malala kept on defying her odds despite attempts to silence her.

    Is this sentence correct?

    Any suggestions?

    Re: odds

    Welcome to the forum, englishlearnering.

    I am afraid your sentence is very difficult to understand. Do you mean: "After surviving an assassination attempt, Malala defied the odds and managed to keep going, despite further attempts to silence her"?
