Choice A

A bright sky far beneath which the square of this building.

Choice B

A bright sky far beneath which the square of this building is.

Choice C

A bright sky far above the square of this building.

Are all three correct?

Which one is better for describing the relation of a sky and a buiding in a place where we are?

  • Hi. What do you mean by "the square of this building"? A and C are incomplete sentences because they have no verb. Where did you find these?

  • @BillyKerr A square next or in front of the building. I try to describe a scene I saw when I was standing at that buiding. Sep 24 at 10:22
  • @BillyKerr Because the square and that building belong the same construction. Sep 24 at 10:35

    Then you should probably say "the square next to/in front of this building" to avoid confusion. The "square of this building" is a bit odd. There are other words for such squares: "courtyard "or perhaps "quadrangle" that are part of a building.

    Also you spelt "beneath" wrong in two of your examples.

Above the square is a prepositional phrase which can be attached to a noun phrase (or other things).

Beneath which the square is is a relative clause which requires a noun phrase to attach to.

Beneath which the square is an incomplete structure, apparently a relative clause but lacking a verb.

  • Hi! I upvoted your good answer! I have a problem. I asked a question. I answered it because nobody answered it. On this site they hate me and they downvoted my question and my answer. Both of them are correct! I will be happy if you read them and upvote or downvote them. I am going to delete my comment later. Thank you very much!
