    I think "and" is redundant

    In this sentence:
    With any device, reserving memory in general purpose RAM, or defining absolute variables in the middle of data banks, further restricts the contiguous memory in the data banks and can reduce the maximum size of objects you can define.

    With any device, [sentence A, or(conj.) sentence B, further(adv.) sentence C ](← I think this is the Subject) "and" can reduce + Object

    I think and is redundant, isn't ?
    I am Taiwanese, and I want to improve my English. If you see any mistake about my sentence, please correct as much as you can.

    I can't see how you can take it out either.

    Andy, have you found the "Thank" button in the bottom left-hand corner of every post? Clicking on that obviates the need to write Thank you posts.

    Have you also spotted the "" icon? We don't accept home-made smileys - especially when they're used to replace standard punctuation marks.
