    Preposition

    "X undertakes to deliver replacement parts to Y at reasonable and competitive prices and conditions."

    "At reasonable and competitive conditions"? Is that really correct?

    Thanks!

    Re: Preposition

    Yes, it is correct.

    Other prepositions would work, also.

    "...for reasonable..."

    "...with reasonable..."

    Re: Preposition

    Awkward, but clearly understood. I might say "at and within..." which would probably get a lot of hackles raised.
