    question

    Please proofread my sentences.Thanks.
    1. However, this is beyond question.
    2. However, there is no question that the events must have happened in this way.
    3. There is also the question of how the events took place.
    4. The final result is, of course, beyond question.

    ... how the events took place.
    Those are possible, but is that really what you mean?

    Re: question

    @teechar
    As you know, my mother tongue is German.
    Maybe I wrote "German" English here.
    Please explain to me what the sentences #2 and #3 would mean in English. Why do you think they are wrong?
    At least in German, these sentences would not be a problem.

    Re: question

    The following are how I understand them.

    2. It is certain that the events happened in this way.
    3. It is uncertain how the events took place.

    Re: question

    @Matthew
    Thank you for explaining.
    That's exactly what I was going to say.
    In this respect, I do not understand teechar's question.
    What's so unusual about that?

    Re: question

    I don't understand either. Perhaps it is unusual for #3 to contradict #2.
