Hope this does not seem to you to be a silly question. I really want a confirmation or negation from you native speakers of English. My question is about the following long sentence:
"The underlying quality determinants" suggest that there should be common irrevocable criteria of quality which are vital for the customer, independent of service sophistication, and the catergory or class of the product, establishment, or facility.
My question is: To your understanding, what is independent of service sophistication, and the category or class of the product, establishment, or facility, "common, irrevocable criteria of quality" OR "the consumer"? My answer is the former of "common, irrevocable criteria of quality", but I am not sure of it and do not know how to explain why.
Looking forward to your reply. Thanks.
