    Please advise whether the followings sentences are correct or how this can be improved:

    (1) The Chairman welcomed members to the meeting.

    (2) The data reflected more on the performance of the students than the performance of the school.

    Thank you.

    (2) The data reflected more on the performance of the students than the performance of the school.

    I would change this sentence.


    Here is how I would writie it.

    The data reflected the performance of the students more than the performance of the school.


    or: The data was more a reflection of the students' performance than the school's performance.

    (1) The chairman welcomed members to the meeting.

    It would be a good idea to specify which members the chairman welcomed here. Are we talking about members of a committee?

    The chairman welcomed the committee members to the meeting.

    In any event, I believe "the" should be placed before "members", as the sentence would be making reference to certain or specific members I would think.
