Recently I received comments from two reviewers on my submitted manuscript as major revision. Both the reviewers have given a few major comments along with some minor comments. The major comments are something like this:
- It is essential to analyse.
- Please add some more explanation on this.
- Please discuss with xyz method and check the difference in the results.
- Why didn't you do it?
The due date is 45 days.
I finished the first 3 major comments in a week. However, I have planned to work on comment number 4 as my future research. I had also mentioned it in the manuscript before submission. But still one reviewer commented as "Why didn't you do it?" So I have explained little more about it (why am I skipping it here) in the revised manuscript.
Now my question is, can I submit the revised manuscript now? Isn't it very early i.e. 38 days earlier than the due date?
If yes, will it give a bad impression that I have another 6 weeks, still I am skipping comment number 4?
Note: The reviewer has not told me work on comment number 4. I am also not interested in including it in this manuscript.
