rovided, however, that a minimum of 5 answers are removed.
Explanation:
Here is my bet (and excuse the dangling participle): "If one or several of the columns have fewer than 5 answers, the columns will be deleted, provided, however, that a minimum of 5 answers are removed. If it is not possible to show at least half the columns, the tabel is removed."

That should, of course, have been \"provided\". Sorry about that.
