    Correct sentence?

    Hello guys,

    Could you tell me which sentence is correct from the two. I am confused.

    1. Not only is ABC Company accredited but it is also audited on regular basis by an independent auditing firm.

    2. Not only ABC Company is accredited but it is also audited on regular basis by an independent auditing firm.

    Thank you.

    The first would be correct with "a" inserted before "regular".

    Please give your thread titles more useful titles. "Not only is ABC" for example.

    I'm sure Mike meant "with 'a'" not 'an'


    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.
