    Using conditionals in business writing

    Hi

    Which one of the following sentences is more appropriate? Here I want to convey that if we ignore the effect of Fx fluctuations (foreign exchange), same-store sales were up 2%.

    1. The negative growth is mainly attributable the strengthening of the Euro throughout 2007. Excluding the Fx effect, same-store sales would have been 2%.

    2. The negative growth is mainly attributable the strengthening of the Euro throughout 2007. Excluding the Fx effect, same-store sales would be 2%.

    Thanks,

    MG.

    Re: Using conditionals in business writing

    I am not sure why you want to use the conditional.

    nb "attributable to the strengthening"
