I’m aware there are similar questions to mine. But most posts I have read do not appear to address the particular inquiries I have here.
There are four possible combinations of this pattern. I think all four may be grammatically correct but there seem to be subtle differences. I'm afraid that if I'm not careful with the distinctions, I may sound confusing and awkward. Can someone please comment on the differences of the four following sentences (see, I'm not even sure this is right)?
I guess that the fourth one is always incorrect since the presentation is already specific so its quality should be specific as well—this means we can never have the pattern [ɴᴏᴜɴ] of the [ɴᴏᴜɴ]. Is my guess correct?
I’m not so sure about the second and third sentences: here presentation must refer to presentation in the general sense as there is no the. Does it matter to have that the before quality? Which version should be used?
