Review of revision 943615 [Passed]Edit

was twice as manyEdit

Hi, I would like suggest a correction.

The point "At age 15 and 16, the proportion of those with ADHD symptoms was twice as many in the ambidextrous group" is not very clear at first glance in my opinion.

It would be better to put the point like that: "At age 15 and 16, the proportion of those with ADHD symptoms in the ambidextrous group was twice as the one found in the group of their right-handed peers"

Obviously surely there are many different ways of paraphrasying the idea better than what I used.

Anyway,the expression "twice as" is to be correlated to "right - handed peers" in a clear way , otherwise the meaning is misunderstood.

Thanks a lot in advance for considering my sugestion!
