Is it correct to use of preposition "of" in my sentence?

The metallic transport skeleton has the possibility of correcting the flatness of the working surface according to the slope of the floor.

Please mention another option to deliver the same idea in this sentence.

    of is fine. The possibility is a quality that belongs to the correcting, and the flatness is a quality that belongs to the surface. I'm not sure why you would want to use a different option.

The preposition of is fine. I suggest to use ability rather than possibility if the working mechanism of the skeleton has been proven.

We could consider the changes as shown below.

The metallic transport skeleton has the ability of adjusting/levelling the working surface according to the slope of the floor.

The metallic transport skeleton has the ability to adjust/level the working surface according to the slope of the floor.

  • What about replacing "has the ability to" with "can"? Simpler style, easier to understand.
