    clearer and legible

    Are these sentences correct?

    We received a copy of your records but some pages are not very clear and legible. To make things easier, can you send us another set of records.

    Re: clearer and legible

    With the proper punctuation both would be correct.

    Re: clearer and legible

    Could you please us send a clearer copy of the records?

    If the records/documents were sent by e-mail, it is unlikely that the same documents would be any clearer if sent the second time.

    Re: clearer and legible

    Perhaps:

    Could you fax them instead of sending them by email?

    Re: clearer and legible

    I guarantee a fax will be less legible than an email.
    Use clear OR legible, not both.

    Text that is blurry can be "not clear" or "illegible."
    Handwriting can be illegible. A new copy won't improve illegible handwriting, but it can improve blurry text.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
