    Default Any suggestions

    The following sentences, which one is correct? Or any suggestions?

    Neither is correct. You have a very long, very complex sentence. This has resulted in many errors and confusion. Try to split the sentence up into shorter, simpler segments.

    In particular:

    "... of the calling reach ..." and "... of the calling reaches ..." are both wrong because you need a noun in each e.g. "... of the calling [noun] reaches ..." Insert the noun of your choice.

    "... the call times ..." Is this supposed to be a number of times or a length of time? To put another way, is the limit 6 calls or 6 minutes.
