    Question Is "Fixing this issue will take 2~3 days" correct?

    "Fixing this issue will take 2~3 days"


    Is the above sentence structure correct? In fact, I want to express: I will fix this issue. But I successfully fix this issue need to 2~3 days.

    In fact, I want to let "Fixing this issue" as a subject, then "will take" as a a predicate. Is this writing Ok?


    Please give me some advice, my english is very poor.

    Write 2-3 instead of 2~3.

    Hi, Rover_KE

    Although this problem has been resolved, I still appreciate your reply and correction. And then "2-3 instead of 2~3", I have marked it up.
