I have obtained complete satisfaction with your perfect explanation. Words fail me to express my gratitude to you.
Thank you for your expert explanation. Thank you also for your indication of the presence of a typo in the last sentence of my original post. “No” have to be “now”.
Thank you again for your kindness.
I must apologize for my delay. I’m trying to follow the sequence of events but unfortunately my responses couldn’t be so timely because for the present I am only a not so quick in uptake, fresh English student besides well on in years.
Thank you again for your new successful correction of the text in my original post.
Thank you for your correctness.
