Hi

Can you help?

"Egyptian advisers strongly opposed the project, in favour of canals to link African lakes, and a reservoir at Wadi Rajan- already a natural basin."

Context:

This is sentence from a passage for comprehension, tiltled Dam.

The central idea is President Nasser who was the President of Egypt between 1956 and 1970, could not be persuaded to stop the construction of the dam on the banks of the Nile.

My question: Were Egyptians in favour of canals....?

or

The project was in favour of canals.....?

The context will tell you: Did the project includes canals to link African lakes and a reservoir at Wadi Rajan or not?

Thank you, Mister Micawber.

I will study the passage more closely to understand the meaning.

Actually I am quite unfamiliar with such a structure. That is why I have a doubt with it.

Can you help me with this?

The students wanted some radical changes in the Student Council, in favour of gender equality.

I have not taken this sentence from any passage. I have framed it to get my doubt cleared.

My questions:

1. Is this sentence meaningful?

2. If the sentence is ok, does 'in favour of gender equality' modify the Student Council or the radical changes which the students want?
1. Is this sentence meaningful?-- Yes, but the meaning is confused, and I don't think the grammar is possible.

2. If the sentence is ok, does 'in favour of gender equality' modify the Student Council or the radical changes which the students want?-- I would think — from common sense, not grammar — that it refers to the students. I must emphasize, however, that that grammar does not support any conclusion. The phrase 'in favor of gender equality' seems to be floating unattached, like an interjection.
Thank you very much, Mister Micawber.
