Hello. I will really appreciate some help from a native speaker of English.
Which word is correct in the following sentence: Both countries claim the four islands WHICH or THAT are known as... Maybe, both?
And one more question.
Is it possible to say: The islands are a (the ?)reason (cause) of dispute. OR The islands are a moot point OR a debatable point / issue. Does it sound natural?
Thank you very much for your time and help.

  • English -

    In the first sentence, you can use either WHICH or THAT.

    If you say the islands are the reason for the dispute, then the islands are the only reason. If you use a reason, then there are other reasons in addition to the islands.

    Your other sentence is correct, with any of your words.
