I am constructing some sentences.

She is now the one who steering the company Hairson.

She is now the one who is steering the company Hairson.

I find it both correct to use either 'somebody who is doing' or 'somebody who doing'. But I want to know is any difference between them.

  • I'm the user writing this and I'm the user who is writing this are both syntactically fine, and mean exactly the same (it's just a stylistic choice whether to include the two extra highlighted words). But I'm the user who writing this is syntactically invalid. Apr 29, 2022 at 11:53

The first one is grammatically wrong, only the second one is correct:

She is now the one who is steering the [Hairson] company.

It cannot be "somebody who doing", you have to specify "is".

"the company Harison" also has to be changed here by swapping the words.

  • Also 'the company Hairson' might need correcting maybe? Apr 29, 2022 at 10:48
  • is it correct now? @MichaelHarvey or do I say "the company named Hairson"
