    Question such a

    "Our aim is to discuss models that describe these relationships; such a model is to be postulated prior to data analysis [...]"

    Is the use of "such a model" is correct in the second clause when in the first clause the plural has been used ("models")?

    Thanks,
    Nyggus

    Does it change anything, by the way? I don't like this "one" to use here though I can't clearly explain why. Is the sentence I proposed correct or not? If not, why?
