    Hello

    The latest survery we conducted revealed that most of our clients are not satisfied with your delivery schedule.

    Do you see any errors in this sentence? Can I say "showed" or "uncovered" instead of revealed?

    Thank you.

    No, we can't use "showed" or "uncovered" in place of "conducted" in this sentence. In this sentence, those words are best associated with "revealed".

    What might you think is an error? On the surface, no, there is no error. Context could possibly reveal that one of the possessive adjectives is not logical, but we would need more context to know this.

    I just noticed the error: survery.

    You can use "showed" instead of "revealed" but not "uncovered". It's a logical choice as a synonym, but "uncovered" doesn't work in this sense. It would work in the context of an exposť.

    An exposure or a revelation of something discreditable.

    exposť: Definition from Answers.com
