Hello, I need your help to know if a sentence is correct or wrong.

The sentence is: "In some cases the integrality conditions are superflous: one important such case is explained here".

I think that writing "one important such case" is wrong. My teacher (who wrote it for his book) thinks it's right.

Please tell me if it is wrong or right and, in case it is wrong, what's the mistake?

Thank you.

I would say that it should read,

"one such important case, is explained here"

though the more I say it, the worse it sounds.

I have no idea what integrality means.

Or maybe:

Such an important case is explained here?

I dunno, it sounds fine to me.

It's overdone. I'm fairly sure integrality is not a word (but have been wrong before), but I'm CERTAIN that superfluous is spelt the way I just spelt it.

You should always use simple words to facilitate maximum coherence...

" In some cases the integrality conditions are superflous; one important such case is explained here."

I learned about :'s and ;'s last year. I think that is right,but I'm not sure.

"one important such case is explained here".


"one" is not an article, you would use "a" - unless you want to say "One of many important cases"

"important" is an attributive adjective and must be next to the noun that's a basic grammatical rule.
so you have "such an important case"

a correct sentence would be
-such an important case is explained here
- one example of such an important case is explained here <---that's probably what your teacher wants to say


I do not want any google ads here.
