"To tackle a problem" or "Tackling a problem"?

以下兩句,邊句才是正確呢?

1) With a unit like this size, to tackle more than one problem at a time is impossible.
2) With a unit like this size, tackling more than one problem at a time is impossible.
有個friend話第二句錯grammar, 但又唔知錯咩。我自己就認為兩句都無問題。

Correct me if I am wrong but the two sentences seem to be awkward with a bit of syntax issue?:smile_41:

Tell us why they are awkward and what syntax issues you found.

I was hoping someone could answer if it there are syntax problems for me:lol.
Nevertheless, the sentences feel awkward and I would surely avoid them in my writing since, I believe, there are better alternatives such as the ones below:
[olist][*]It is impossible [for/with] a unit of this size to tackle more than one problem at a time.[*]Tackling more than one problem at a time is impossible (for/with) a unit of this size.[/olist]

OK!
You only feel awkward about them but you don't really know if they are really awkward in the eyes of native speaker, right?

Pretty sure it is a bit awkward for most. What do you think?

It’s not to me, but awkwardness is relative and subjective

perhaps "a unit with size like this" / "with the size of a unit like this" sounds better to you ?

as an English learner, I don't see the awkwardness of the sentences. I may not want to use "impossible" in the sentence, but there is another topic for another day.
