    too many problems

    Are these sentences correct:

    1) You have too many problems to solve them all in one day.

    2) You have too many problems to solve any of them. (You are submerged in problems and won't be able to solve any of them)

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: too many problems

    1 is fine.
    2 is not natural. Perhaps "You have so many problems that you can't solve any of them!"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: too many problems

    Thank you both very much for all your kind replies.

    How about:

    A) You are dealing with too many problems at once to be able to solve any of them.
    B) You are dealing with too many problems to be able to solve any of them.


    Gratefully,
    Navi.
