How best to rewrite this sentence: So it was, as was read, and discussed in chapter four.
So it was, as was read, and discussed in chapter four.
We'll start with "grammer." That needs to be changed.
The tricky part that I see in the sentence is the part "so it was." That actually means very little and adds a lot of confusion to the sentence. What, for example, is "it" and why not just say what "it" is? Hypothetically speaking, let's say that "it" means the concept of entropy. The sentence is so much more clear by writing it very directly:
The concept of entropy was read and discussed in chapter four.
This is where the pronoun "it" shows its face as one of the most vague and sometimes confusing parts of reading or writing in English.
