    Weighted in money

    I am not sure if my sentences sound natural. Please would you correct my mistakes.

    1, Anna's generosity could not be weighted in money.

    Or maybe it would be better to write like this?

    2. Anna's generosity could not be measured in money.

    Re: Weighted in money

    Sentence 2 works fine. Sentence 1 is unnatural.

    Re: Weighted in money

    And if 1 was natural, it would be "weighed," not "weighted." "Weighted" means something different.
