    Is this sentence correct?

    Hi guys
    is the position of the first "to" correct in this phrase?

    ".... It is also worth mentioning that the data in Table III, which the Reviewer probably refers to, do not correspond to real measurements"

    or should I say ..."to which the Reviewer refers"?

    thanks

    Try this
    It is also worth mentioning that the data in Table III, which the Reviewer is refering, does not correspond to real measurements

    Re: Is this sentence correct?

    I'm not completely convinced.... I'd rather use "refer" as intransitive....

    can you suggest ause with this verb?

    thanks

    Hi, I think that it reads better as;

    ".... It is also worth mentioning that the data in Table III, to which the Reviewer refers , do not correspond to real measurements"

    Depends on the style. 'to which' is more formal, 'which ... to' - conversational.
