Student or Learner
I really need an answer, please!
Is it correct to repeat "of" at every object in a list, or is it enough to write it only the first time?
this is the complete sentence:
...or other operations in the chest requiring opening of the sternum or the chest cavity.
It sounds terrible to me!
I don't understand your query I'm afraid. I see no repetition of the word 'of' in the sentence you give.
However, it isn't necessary to repeat 'of' before every noun.
The cake was made of flour, eggs, sugar, dried fruit and brandy.
In this example, I would use a second "of". But it is not absolutely necessary.
