I have a sentence similar to this one that I am working on:
A survey showed that 75% of the respondents used both mobile and desktop applications, 20% used only mobile applications, and 5% used only desktop applications.
I know that there is something to be done with the repeated "only" and "applications", but my questions is: can I somehow use ellipsis / dashes to omit the verb altogether without having to use synonyms?
I mean I could write, "used... preferred... chose...", but I am more interested in a "grammar approach" here. My native language is Russian, and in Russian you can just use a dash to omit the repeated part:
A survey showed that 75% of the respondents used both mobile and desktop applications, 20% — only mobile applications, and 5% — only desktop applications.
So far, I have found some quiz questions about Emily Dickinson using dashes to avoid repetition, but it seems like this is an exception.
