The first one, if you replace "calculating" with "calculation", is the best.
"pose a risk" is a common idiom. You should keep it, in my opinion. It means "present a risk".
I would keep "results of the calculation".

As for your questions, let me just say that you can't use both "may" and "can", as in your "may I can replace". Say either "Can I replace" or "May I replace", OK?

results of the calculation = results of calculatingc ,exactly?

i have seen "of calculating" from somewhere

thank you
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
"of calculating" would normally following by another word saying what was being calculated.

the results of calculating the length of the board
the process of calculating the amount of oil needed

Hi CJ,

A related question on this topic: I get a feeling that 'the site is not expected to pose an unacceptable health risk' might imply as if the site is expected to pose an acceptable health risk. In this context, shall we say "any health risks" instead of "an unacceptable health risk" ? Thanks.
Yes but you had better be sure that there is 100% no chance of any health risks!

I get a feeling that 'the site is not expected to pose an unacceptable health risk' might imply ... [that] the site is expected to pose an acceptable health risk.
Yes. I think that is almost exactly what is implied, intentionally so, possibly for legal purposes.

... not expected to pose an unacceptable health risk is meant to be taken as ... not expected to pose health risks that exceed the limits of what is acceptable for a health risk.

Thus, the implication is that (the site) is expected to pose only those health risks, if any, that remain within the limits of what is acceptable for a health risk. This implication is not exactly the same as ... expected to pose an acceptable health risk, in which we feel that a health risk will definitely occur even though it will be an acceptable one. The difference is subtle and depends on interpreting unacceptable in terms of exceeding certain limits of acceptability.

2.) please explain me for an usage of the word "pose"?

3.) may i can replace "Based on the results from"?

-> ok, it should be "Based on the results of" for better.

4.) may i can replace "calculation"?

A) the calculation

B) calculation

C) the calculating

D) calculating

thank you very much all of experts.
please explain me the differences of "Base[ d ] on the results of (A,B,C,D)"?
A) the calculation

B) calculation

C) the calculating

D) calculating

The difference is easy to explain. A) is correct; B) is correct; the others are wrong.
If there was a particular calculation that was done, use A).
If you are talking about calculation in general, use B).
