    Positive / Negative meaning

    Hi,

    " The resulting distrubutions will be sufficiently skewed to yield definitive predictions."

    In this sentence, is meaning negative ? It seems that it is grammatically positive.


    Regards...

    Re: Positive / Negative meaning

    I have no idea what it's supposed to mean. Where did you find it?
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    See my amendments above, marked in red. Don't put a space after opening quotation marks or before a question mark.

    Like bhaisahab, I have no idea what the sentence means.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
