Well a new friend of mine (I just met him today!) had submitted the following sentence in his report:"The dependency of the results to the mesh density has been checked".
Now, his report was marked and his sentence corrected because he was told that he had to use
the word "in" instead of "to". Well, in my opinion, "to"
looks fine, as well as "upon"
, or even "towards"
I know that all this heavily depends on the meaning of the sentence, so I kindly ask to help
if you are 100% sure. If you are unsure, please do not confuse me more! LOL
In my opinion, the logical meaning of this sentence is crucial. If "mesh density" is connected with "dependency" it should read "The dependency of the results on
the mesh density", meaning that the results depend on mesh density.
If "mesh density" is connected with "results", I would use for clarity: "The dependency of the results regarding
the mesh density has been checked".
