    Question is this sentence correct?

    Is this sentence grammatically correct?

    "This answer is a bit of convincing to me"

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    No, it's not correct and I don't know what you are trying to say.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I want to say this sentence is a bit convincing to me.

    Can't I use "of" to emphasize that it's a little bit convincing to me.

    Re: is this sentence correct?

    No. Using "of" does not have that effect at all. I would not use "this sentence is a bit convincing to me" at all. It's unnatural.

    I am not completely convinced by this sentence.
    I am [only] a little convinced by this sentence.
