    Full Capability

    Dear Teachers,

    Kindly help review below two sentences and please give me your advice if they are grammaticle ans using the right words. Kindly advise which one is better, or please give me your kind suggestions if none of them are correct.
    1) She resigned from both positions since she could not provide full capability to the Company due to a lot more assignments.
    2) The reason for her resignation is because she could not provide full capability to the Company since she has a lot more obligations.

    Thank you very much.

    NOT A TEACHER

    Since no one has responded to this thread, here are my $0.02. Both sentences don't really work for me. Why is "Company" capitalised? Is the company called "Company"? If not, I don't see any reason to capitalise it.

    I would have written it like this: She resigned from both positions because she could not provide her full services to the company due to the large number of other assignments that she had to complete.

    I don't know if my sentence really works or not, so your best bet would be to wait for a response from a native speaker and/or teacher.

    Re: Full Capability

    Dear Chicken Sandwich and tzfujimino,

    Thank you very much for your kind suggestions. The reason "Company" is captalised because we mentioned company name at the first paragraph and using "the Company" to refer to name of this company on the later paragraph.

    Thank you again for your help.

    Re: Full Capability

    Change 'capability' to 'commitment' or rephrase the sentence something like this:

    'She resigned because she could not commit herself fully to the company due to her many other obligations.'

    Capitalise 'company' in its name, but not when mentioning it like this.
