Hi Fellow Stressers!!

I've read this article online.:

"Component response modification factor adjustment: This adjustment factor varies from a factor of 1.0 (Rp = 1.0) for nonstructural components that exhibit an ability to deform and remain within the elastic range under a seismic event to Rp = 12 for equipment that does not exhibit ductile response (deforms beyond its elastic limit during a seismic event)."

I believe there is something wrong with the statement. Should the word "not" be removed from the statement?

Cheers!!
