SOURCE (one of dozens)
I have some confusion in this sentence:
Rather, it is a complex art in that thoughts and idioms which have no obvious analogues from tongue to tongue - or words which have multiple meanings - must quickly be transformed in many a way that the message is clearly and accurately expressing to the listener.
I found some mistakes in this one, then I searched on the Net for the answers. The correct answers are "in that" -> "in which", "many" -> "such", "expressing" -> "expressed".
This is a cleft sentence, so its structure is "It is + N + that +....". And they also use a relative clause in this. I used to be taught that if we use "which", we have to put a preposition ahead it. And if we use "that", we have to put preposition behind. However, my teacher also says that we can only use "that" in the cleft sentence. Plus, they also have "such a way that" which means "so that", so I think "that" here is not used for the cleft sentence. Therefore, I was very confused and wondered why the correct answer was "in which".
Thanks in advance for any helps or advice.
