    Three missing words

    Good morning to any of you out there at this time,

    a student presented this Fill The Gap exercise (I will not post all of it, obviously) and there is a sentence that I can't quite figure out. If you will

    Almost ...... wild animal collection in the world benefits......, the large amount of research.........., has been published by the Society.

    The commas are my problem to be honest.

    Thank you...

    Re: Three missing words

    I'm having a hard time with those commas as well.

    Without commas, I'd say 'any', 'from', and 'which' for the missing words.

    Re: Three missing words

    Welcome to the forum, Teon.

    Was this a stand-alone sentence with no further context?

    Re: Three missing words

    Thank you. Good to be here. No, of course there was more. But I didn't want to bore you. It reads:

    (precedes) The Society studies the diet and health of animals, while in the Animal Hospital the staff are responsible for carrying out checks on the animals so as to detect any disease within the zoo... (problematic sentence)... (follows) In fact, the Society was already interested in conservation long before this became a matter of concern.
