- ... far as anyone can judge in so delicate and subtle a matter, I believe the chances are..
I have some questions about this text.
First, how could a verb (judge) be separated from the direct object (a matter) by adjectives (subtle and delicate)
Second, as i know, after preposition comes a noun or gerund, but i have never seen a preposition followed by adjectives, how do you explain that?
Rather than, i would use the text in this way:
_ ... Judge a matter delicately and subtly.
