    Re: which sentence is correct?

    Do you mean conception [the moment that it was originally thought of] or do you mean inception [the point at which the organization began its operations]?

    Re: which sentence is correct?

    [quote=EMAIL REMOVED - Send PM to This User Instead;252202]Your second sentence (using the word SINCE) is correct if you change conception to inception.

    It should read >> The organization has been beset by problems since its inception.
