any sentences correct?

Postby Tukanja » Sun Jul 25, 2010 7:40 am

Dears

which of these sentences below are eventually correct ones?

The procedures that are given in the manual are present but they are not given by way of being described in details as they should have been, of course.

I'm not totally sure if any of these are totally correct - I can't work out what you are trying to say.

I THINK you may mean

There are instructions in the manual, but they are not described in as much detail as they should be.

OR

There are instructions in the manual, but they are not described in enough detail.

I hope I have understood this correctly.

Your sentence is better than mine, as always. :-)
But I wouldn't substitute the word procedures with the word instructions.

And also my question mostly was about the verb tenses that were used in the sentences.
