    Everytime I write English sentences, I think English is interesting language.

    Are there any grammartical mistake?

    #1. It is proved that 8pcs of samples among 9pcs received are defected with the insufficient current.

    I would have phrased this as follows:

    It has been proved from a sample that 8pcs of the 9pcs received were defective, having insufficient current.

    Re: Which one is correct?

    Additionally,
    Eight out of the nine sample pieces we received are defective in having insufficient current.
    I have a question of my own, what does "insufficient current" mean?

    Re: Which one is correct?

    Here are three ways of expressing the same thing:

    1. 8pcs of the 9pcs received were defective. They have insufficient current.

    2. 8pcs of the 9pcs received were defective, having insufficient current.

    3. 8pcs of the 9pcs received, having insufficient current, were defective.

    Does that help?
