    Question Grammar maybe

    There is no social problem it is more incumbent upon us to understand than this of the role of custom.(NEW CONCEPT 4)

    Is the sentence above wrong? Should the "it" be replaced with "that"? I just do not understand. HELP!

    Re: Grammar maybe

    Yes, "it" should be replaced by "that", But the end of the sentence does not work. What are you trying to say?

    It can be sure that the sentence is right, but I just cannot understand the sentence and what is the function of "it".

    Please check the accuracy of the information in your profile, Kingsley.L.
    The sentence is meaningless to me.
