    I posted the following sentence in a blog and the majority of people could not understand it.

    The exercise consist of making the buffer A dynamic so that the application is able to read and print an arbitrary long string.

    I am wondering if the sentence structure is correct. In particular, I am not sure whether I am correctly using "consist of".

    What I am trying to say is that to correctly solve the exercise is required the use of a dynamic buffer.

    Is "He is too weak that he cannot walk" a correct sentence?

    Consider the following:

    1. He is too weak that he cannot walk.

    2. He is so weak that he cannot walk.

    3. He is too weak to walk.

    I feel all the above sentences are correct. But my grammar book suggests, that the first one is wrong and the rest is correct. Why is it so? Any explanation?
