1. I am looking for a big house which I can live in.

2. I am looking for a big house to live in.

3. I am looking for a big house which to live in.

4. I am looking for a big house in which to live.

(Sentence 1 is a complex sentence. The others are simple sentences. Are all the sentences grammatical and do they have the same meaning?)

  • English -

    1 is awkward ~~> I am looking for a big house in which to live.

    2 is fine.

    3 is incorrect; see #1.

    4 is fine; see #1.

    Complex sentences = 1 and 4.
    Simple sentence = 2.
    Incorrect = 3.

  • English -

    Try not to end sentences with prepositions, which are designed to relate to objects ("live in" what?).

    I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
