    Wink What's wrong with the sentence?

    The world had been so new yet that a number of things did not have its name and it needed to point a finger on it.

    Re: What's wrong with the sentence?

    The sentence does not convey a clear thought, it is impossible to understand. I don't understand who or what the it is.

    I confess your sentence is still mysterious to me. Does it mean anything like:

    "The world was yet so new that many things were nameless and needed to be pointed out."
