    This expression is not correct

    Adding, deleting and synchronizing are not included in the query operation. These four operations are parallel.

    Re: expression-right ?

    Welcome.

    These are not querying operations: adding, deleting, and synchronizing system parameters. 'querying operations' means, asking about/finding out more information about.

    Common Operations
    querying information about (something)
    adding
    deleting
    synchronizing

    Notice the comma below. It separates 'querying operations about' from 'adding'.

    Ex: ..querying information about, adding

    If 'adding' were the grammatical object of 'about' there wouldn't be a comma there.

    Ex: ..querying information about adding, deleting, ...

    All the best.
