I'm trying to write a sentence with the phrase "eliminates the need to do sth..." and have gotten as far as “消除作sth..的————”, any suggestions? I don't think 需要or必须are very good choices because they are usually placed near the beginning of the sentence...
(1) A排除对B的需求 - A eliminates the need for B
(2) A消除对B的需要 - ditto
Don't forget to use 对 as 'preposition'.
use 需求 is better
for example: “需要从源头上消除代写论文的需求” from 新华网
需求；需求量 “需求”虽然有一个“求”，但它可以也经常被作为名词。“需要”实际上也可以做名词。比如说： “你有没有考虑到我的需要！” “把人民的需要放在第一位(Not the case for the commies tho...)” 需求更多被放在比较正式的场合。比如做调查时“消费者的需求”。 Don't doubt it. I'm native Chinese haha^^
I would suggest 避免作sth..的需求
消除 doesn't feel right for the context.
