...for the on which... How to use this combination of words? I'm not sure of what is being said when an expression has this sequence of words, could you please give me same examples and alternatives?Larry, as I do not know how to understand it yet, I'm showing you a example that I found on web while I was trying to make sense of it. "But in reality it displays the port number on the system for the on which ethtool command is used to query the value." The network is smoothly incorporated into our daily business and gives you together with our employees the 100% certainty FOR THE ON WHICH you are free to build up your promises to your clients. http://www.tbs-team24.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=70&Itemid=82

Do you have a context for these words Alex? I don't recognise them as such. I'm not sure it is a correct sequence of words. I certainly can't see how you can use them. Perhaps I'm overlooking something...

Hey Alexandre, I'm thinking the sentence was drafted, then rewritten, but not proofread. It could read: "...gives you together with our employees the 100% certainty ON WHICH you are free to build up your promises..." or, "...gives you together with our employees the 100% certainty for the _?_?_?_" ...I don't know what was meant to go here. I think Kayleigh's comment clears up a lot of mystery. As for the other example, here's how I read it: "...displays the port number on the system for the "on", which the tool command is used ..." (I'm not even sure of that makes sense... I don't know what an "on" is supposed to be.)

I think this may be the web page where the extract came from. http://paparadit.blogspot.com/2007/03/ethtool-how-to-know-your-lan-card.html
