    Unsure of grammer ussage.

    Absence of one or both testicles, congenital or undescended is disqualifying.

    Is this saying that its disqualifying to be missing one or both due to it being congenital or undescended, or does it mean missing one or both is disqualifying and congenital or undecended is just clarifying some grey areas.

    As I understand the sentence, it's saying that the absence of one or both testicles, whether that absence is due to a birth defect or the testicle(s) not having descended yet, is disqualifying.

    I'm tempted to ask the context of this.
