"...my informing you"
« on: June 21, 2019, 04:45:12 am »
Dear teachers,

May I know whether both the following sentences are natural?

1. I am sorry for my informing you so late.

2. I am sorry for informing you so late.

Thank you very much.

Yes indeed.
#1 is more formal but perfectly correct.
#2 is still quite formal but slightly less so; and still, perfectly correct.
Best wishes,
