    The most important point.

    "If we have to tell someone three important points then we first tell them the most important point and after that the point that is less important than the first one and then the least important point. So we tell the most important point before all other points."

    Please check.

    Re: The most important point.

    If we have to tell someone three important points, we tell them in order of importance, the most important first.

    Re: The most important point.

    It isn't always true- you could conclude with the most important point. What matters is making it clear what matters most.

    Re: The most important point.

    True. I wasn't suggesting that my version was true. I was merely presenting it as a simpler form of tufguy's.

    I was merely adding another point of view on the contents.

    Are my senteces correct? I know they are lengthy but are they grammatical?

    Re: The most important point.

    Tufguy, you are going to have to tell us whether "Please check" simply means "I want you to tell me if my sentences are grammatically acceptable even if they're not the best way of saying something" or "I want you to tell me if my sentences can be improved and, if so, how".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: The most important point.

    It's grammatical. I personally would add a few commas if I ever wrote a sentence like that - which I hope I wouldn't, despite that it's grammatical.
