4. This is the book. The cover of it is red.
= This is the book the cover of which is red.

(Are they all grammatical? Are there any wrong expressions?)

  • English -

    4, for the first one seems iffy. You might wanna use a comma after book.

    =This is the book, the cover of which is red.

    If you get so desperate just type your sentences in to microsoft word and spell check

  • English -

    The first three sentences are correct.

    For number 4, it would be better to say

    This is the red book.

    Or

    This is the book with the red cover.
