    Dear teacher
    Thank you for noticing my post. Here I'm trying to correct my sentences:

    1-This type of antenna is preferred for reducing the disruptive effects.
    2-This type of antenna is preferred to reduce the disruptive effects.

    Would you please kindly tell me which one is correct or preferred?

    With regards
