Bumping with a query
daagh egmat "better control of infections", Better control seems me to be an adjective modifying infections. the word possibility is modifying better control, an adjective. Dont you think that possible is incorrect here?

Where is the word possible? Could you kindly give me the entire clause and picture, and make it easy for me respond? Also, better is an adjective and it modifies the noun control. It is actually the prepositional phrase 'of infections' that modifies the control. It is important to understand the structure of the sentence, or else, we may go astray in the meaning.

Apologies for being too abstract.
The success of the program to eradicate smallpox has stimulated experts to pursue what they had not previously considered possible−better control, if not eradication, of the other infections such as measles and yaws. I was referring to possible that is in bold font.
Now I understood the sentence clearly but have a question. better control of diseases is a possibility or better control of diseases is possible?

Both seem correct. can't make out any difference in meaning
