Which one is correct between the two? I am now confused with sentence structures such as these...

 

"The researchers intend to study on how to solve obesity." vs. "The researchers intend to study on how obesity can be solved."

 


- Can somebody give me tips regarding this matter? Answers are very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

The phrase 'Study on' in this context is awkward. I would also change 'obesity' to 'the problem of obesity'.

 

The researchers intend to study solutions to the problem of obesity.

 

The researchers intend to study how the problem of obesity can be solved.
