Hello.
Please help me with a few questions.
1)Is it possible to use "authority" in the context "he was removed from authority" (ie 'from power')?
2)is it possible to say "he was deposed from power/authority"?
3)Which is the correct word order, "his two sisters" or "two his sisters"?
4)Does the sentence sound normal: "His achievements seem to be doubtful"?
Thank you very much for all your help.

    3. his two sisters (the other is not used)

    4. Better phrasing is this: We doubt his achievements.
    (Achievements are "things" and therefore cannot have doubts; only humans do that.)
