    same meaning of a sentence

    Suppose I have been given a sentence to rewrite it without changing its meaning. Then I tried my best to write another form of given sentence. And after writing my sentence I went to the person, who has given the sentence, to ask him- Whether my sentence is right or wrong and whether it conveys the same meaning or not. Can I use the following sentence to ask him? i.e, does the following sentence make any sense?

    "If I write the above sentence in the following way, do you think that the following sentence can be considered as a correct with having similar meaning of your given sentence/ with having as like as meaning that your sentence has. (I want to say this sentence to this person).

    Re: same meaning of a sentence

    First of all, don't make things too complicated. I would say something like:

    Have I got it right?

    OR

    Is this what you wanted?

    Perhaps:

    Is this sentence grammatically correct, and does it say what you want it to say?

    Make your sentences brief and to the point. Make it your goal to achieve clarity. Don't make things too complicated.
