    LS and the ambiguity

    Please incisively identify the LS(logic subject) for each phrase in bold:

    "Microsoft Project Server 2010 integrates the Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 Business Intelligence Center Web application, which provides a central point for hosting the reports, dashboards, and report connections that can be auto-created or manually authored to provide access to reporting data in Project Server for your users."

    Q1: LS is "report connections" or "the reports, dashboards, and report connections" ?
    Q2: LS is "..being auto-created / authored"? "hosting .."? or "which provides .." ?

    thanks

    1 the reports, dashboards, and report connections- this seems more likely
    2 all of it- it a provides a central point and this point is where the reports/dashboards/connections allow users to access the reporting data IMO.

    Thx Tdol. For Q2, do you believe it makes no difference if we add or not add a comma just before "to provide access.." ?

    Re: LS and the ambiguity

    What i mean is: which would be the correct interpretation?


    a.
    "Microsoft Project Server 2010 integrates the Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 Business Intelligence Center Web application, which provides a central point for hosting the reports, dashboards, and report connections that can be auto-created or manually authored to provide access to reporting data in Project Server for your users." where the sub-sentence "to provide access.." is closer to the verb "auto-created/authored" both grammatically and semantically.

    b.
    "Microsoft Project Server 2010 integrates the Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 Business Intelligence Center Web application, which provides a central point for hosting the reports, dashboards, and report connections that can be auto-created or manually authored to provide access to reporting data in Project Server for your users." where the sub-sentence "to provide access.." is closer to the verb "hosting.." both grammatically and semantically.

    c.
    "Microsoft Project Server 2010 integrates the Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 Business Intelligence Center Web application, which provides a central point for hosting the reports, dashboards, and report connections that can be auto-created or manually authored to provide access to reporting data in Project Server for your users." where the sub-sentence "to provide access.." is closer to the verb "(which) provides.." both grammatically and semantically.
