    parenthesis (cont...)

    Hi,

    In the following parenthesis structure, grammatically, in what places can the words "however" and "for example" be put in it (and aslo make the sentence correct in meaning)? I have listed several possible combinations, as follows, please advise if there are any other combinations, and also tell me which one is wrong is any. Thank you! And if you could tell me their subtle differences in grammar or meaning, I would highly appreciate it.
