    language problem

    Hi Teachers,

    "xxx." Jane said with a face resembling that of an insurance agent who is convincing her client to sign on the dotted line.

    1) Is the sentence above grammatically correct?
    2) Please offer suggestions to rephrase that in any way.
    3) Does that sentence suggests : "Jane looks persuasive and determine"?

    Thank you.
