However, there are shortcomings in this paper. In section 2, subheadings can be distinguished. Similarly: see section 4. In lines 311 and 313, why the Authors used singular form when there are 2 Authors of this paper? There are slightly more of such mistakes.
The article undoubtedly needs to be refined. Many items are inserted in red as if it were still a draft. The drawings in the article require improvement and presentation of better quality, as well as the tables. The appendix looks similar. There is also no reference to the additional materials provided. Similarly, the presentation of research results and their discussion are not entirely clear. Reading the article, you get the impression that it looks rather like a patchwork of previous conclusions from other works. Despite the research attempt made, the article looks rather a draft and should not be reviewed in this form.
