Please correct them if they are wrong.
#2 is wrong.
#4 is OK.
#1 and #3 are grammatically correct, but this use of “lead” feels a bit unusual. More usual would be something like “I hope you encourage/persuade him to pay more attention to sales work”.
#2 was the original, taken from a letter which you read on this forum, wasn’t it Allfathima.
Do you think Luschen and I would both have changed the original if it wasn’t wrong?
Do you think Luschen would have suggested #1 if it was wrong?
I agree with Dozy about #1. As Beeesneees said, this was from a letter I gave a suggestion about and I tried to keep the phrasing as close as possible to the original letter.
