Hi

As for the second sentence I guess that we should replace "consequences is" with "consequences are" can you see any other mistakes? § 2. A prohibited act whose social consequences is insignificant shall not constitute an offence.

As for the third one I think it should be "...of a prohibited act" rather than "of an prohibited act" Are there any other mistakes in this sentence according to you?§ 3. The perpetrator of an prohibited act does not commit an offence if guilt cannot be attributed

to him at the time of the commission of the act.

thank you

I am not sure what part you want corrected, Newguest, but my few changes to everything are in bold:

thank you, this is what I wanted to know!

It's much more idiomatic to ask if something is so "in your opinion", not "according to you".

Hi

You're trying to say that "according to you" is wrong or that "in your opinion " is just better?
It's grammatically correct, but then thousands of sentences are grammatically correct, but no native speaker would ever say them. Emotion: smile

Because it's correct from the viewpoint of grammar, I can't actually say that it's wrong in that sense. And the use of "in your opinion" is equally correct from the viewpoint of grammar, so I can't say that it's better, in that sense.

However, if you approach a native speaker and ask him something like "What's the best way to get to the train station, according to you?", he will find it a bit strange. The formula "according to so-and-so" is usually reserved for acknowledged authorities on a subject, especially authors, as in "According to Jaynes, consciousness originated in the breakdown of the bicameral mind", or "This is the gospel according to Luke".
