    Re: Help achieve/ achieving

    Hello Anthony,
    I would use only #1.
    You could say "in achieving" but there's no reason to. Stick with #1.
    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.
