Comparing the following two sentences, where A and B are two different time periods:

S1: A and B are extended to a period of 60 days and 90 days, respectively.

S2: A and B are each extended to a period of 60 days and 90 days, respectively.

S3: Each of A and B is extended to a period of 60 days and 90 days, repectively.

S1: A and B are extended to a period of 60 days and 90 days, respectively.

S2: A and B are each extended to a period of 60 days and 90 days, respectively.

**Question: In S2, does the word "each" provide more emphasis to the tone(does it sound right/obvious) when "respectively" already denotes the subjects clearly? Or is it redundant, or even grammatically incorrect?**Here is S3 for comparison:S3: Each of A and B is extended to a period of 60 days and 90 days, repectively.

Don't use 'each' with 'respectively'.

CliveInfinikS4: A and B are each extended to a period of 60 days and 90 days.

InfinikRespectively is the correct word for this context as it means A becomes 60 days and B becomes 90 days.

nona the britInfinikIt's not clear if you want to say:

- extend A to 60 days

and (at the same time)- extend B to 90 days

or:

- extend

bothAandB to 60 daysor90 daysThis is a legal mess
