    using common adjective before nouns

    Hi there!
    My problem is as follow: am I to use a common adjective (and article too) before each noun that follows each other or I may use it ones before the first noun and then not mention?
    For example:
    the 1'st sample: "The integrity principle impies the only legal basis, the only unified budget classification and the only unified documentation"
    the 2'nd sample: "The integrity princilple impies the only legal basis, unified budget classification and documentation"
    The original idea is that the "only" must belong to each noun. From this point what sample is correct (if there is correct one)?

    Re: using common adjective before nouns

    The second is OK- I'd say that they were all 'the only'.

    PS 'Implies'
