I want to express the following:

  1. We made an algorithm
  2. The algorithm can be applicable to A system.
  3. The A system can have any protocols.

Is the following sentence grammatically correct?

We made an algorithm applicable to A system which routing protocol ever it has.

    No, it is not correct. Our algorithm is applicable to System A regardless of the protocol being used. Or Our algorithm for System A is protocol independent. – Jim Aug 8 '17 at 4:53
  • Thank you. The second sentence is very concise. May I ask one more question? "Our algorithm is applicable to System A regardless of which kind of protocol is used." is also correct? – Danny_Kim Aug 8 '17 at 4:55
  • @Danny_Kim - yes. 'which kind of' is quite correct. – whanrott Aug 8 '17 at 13:03

    @Jim But equally, Our algorithm is applicable to System A, whichever/whatever the protocol being used. – Araucaria Aug 8 '17 at 16:41
  • @Araucaria - That fallutes lower in my book. – Jim Aug 8 '17 at 17:34

Possible duplicate of this question. "What" should be used in this case as there are no choices presented, unless the description of 'A system' and its possible 'routing protocols' are discussed before the sentence.

  • I want to write one concise sentence that implies meaning 1~3. – Danny_Kim Aug 8 '17 at 4:54
