Hello everybody,
can anyone tell if the verb RESIDE is correct here:

Whether a new technology will be adopted RESIDES mostly in keeping the cost per device unit as low as possible.

If there are other mistakes, I will appreciate your help!

Thanks a lot!

    Hello.

    You could say this, and it certainly isn't 'wrong', but it would be more readily understood this way:

    "Adoption of a new technology will depend primarily on keeping unit cost per device as low as possible."

    I'm resuming this old thread to ask everyone an opinion on this sentence:

    "The main reason for such a growth resides in the excellent chemical properties exhibited by this class of materials..." (it's a market trend analysis)

    I'm not sure about that "resides". There's probably a better way to say it (?).

    Thanks everyone

    Credo che probabilmente nel caso di Samu! il verbo 'rely' può funzionare, nel senso:

    The main reason for [whatever] relies in [whatever].

    ISNT IT? ;)

    The main reason for such growth rests with the...
