"Please help me here." (We don't really need an exclamation mark.)

Thank you, Lazarus, for presenting your question as a polite request rather than a brusque demand. I wish more members would try this.

'Alone' appears to modify 'success', and 'together' appears to modify 'it'.  We need something like:


"When you work alone, success is hardly possible; when you collaborate, success is inevitable".
