What is the exact meaning of this sentence?


The encouraging mails were not restricted to readers but also to some of the regular contributors to The Hindu .

It is hard to say, Felix, because it is a poorly constructed sentence.

Felix - I should have clarified my sentence by saying that 'some' of the regular contributors of The Hindu were giving positive feedback. I apologize if there was any confusion.

I hope this helps!

The sentence means that both the readers and the regular contributors to The Hindu were given positive feedback.


- 'ding'

Hmm....two downvotes for helping to clarify a sentence...people can be so ungrateful for our free help.
