    not a teacher
    To apprehend means to arrest (a criminal).
    The two sentences are totally incomprehensible.

    This was not written by a native. It wouldn't surprise me at all to find this came out of some computer translator. It's incomprehensible.

    And if the computer translators were on crack, it wouldn't come out any worse than this!
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    The person behind the site is Chinese, so it could be a computer translation of something they wrote. As English, it makes no sense at all.
