    Proportion or theises.

    "He made a proportion or theises that the work will be completed by next year."

    Is it correct? Please check.

    Re: Proportion or theises.

    Sorry, no. What do you mean by theises? There is no such word.
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: Proportion or theises.

    ...and 'proportion' doesn't make sense in that context.

    not a teacher

    By "proportion or theises", do you mean "proposition or thesis"?

    Re: Proportion or theises.

    In that case, neither word is correct in that sentence.

    Re: Proportion or theises.

    Proposal or theory? It is very hard to work out the idea here.

    Re: Proportion or theises.

    'No' is not a meaningful response to that quote. What do you mean?

    Re: Proportion or theises.

    I think tufguy might have said "No" to that statement because he had already said "Yes" to "Do you mean proposition or thesis?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
