    Exclamation How to say that a conclusion was taken from something?

    Here's the sentence:

    The experimental units from which the study’s conclusions were withdrawn were...

    Is "withdraw" the right verb here? Is it correct to say "to withdraw a conclusion"?
    Can somebody please give me synonyms to the "withdraw" verb in "to withdraw a conclusion"?

    And, finally, is there a version of the above sentence where I don't have to use the first were (the one in red), as I would like not to have two "were" that close.

    Regards

    You need the first "were", "withdraw" is not the right verb, "draw" is.
