Student or Learner
I’m trying to figure out how I can rewrite these sentences without the use of the word "no". Can anybody help? Since they will be part of a technical report I would like to avoid the use of these "ugly" words.
"To the best of my knowledge, there have been no previous attempts to analyze X...”
"the search is no longer guaranteed to converge toward a global maximum"
"X concluded that there were no significant loss in accuracy"
To the best of my knowledge, there haven't been any previous attempts to analyse X....
The search isn't guaranteed to converge towards a global maximum any more (*One thing cannot converge - surely the search and something else have to converge)
I haven't been able to come up with an alternative to sentence 3!
Thanks for the swift replies!
I forgot to mention one thing though. They should be rewritten without using any form of "not" or "*n't". It is one of the requirements of the academic text I'm writing. I suppose "cannot" could be acceptable, but preferably they should be completely rewritten. But in these cases, is it possible?
