I am having the following construction.

1: The figure demonstrates that the most frequent rmse falls within the range of 0.3m-0.6m. The deviation is approximately equal to the resolution of data.

Is it possible to omit the subject of second sentence and join like this.

2: The figure demonstrates that the most frequent rmse falls within the range of 0.3m-0.6m which is approximately equal to the resolution of data.

So, I want to know whether my second sentence is correct or not. thanks

  • Is 'the most frequent rmse' the same as 'The deviation'? – EnglishLearner Mar 27 '13 at 14:11

The second version is correct if the most frequent rmse means the same thing as the deviation. However, I would add a comma before which.

  • I can't agree with this as it stands. If you add a comma before "which", there is no "second sentence". – FumbleFingers Apr 10 '13 at 22:29
  • @FumbleFingers I am referring to the OP's second sentence highlighted in yellow, I hope this makes sense. Or would "second statement" be less confusing? – Trish Rempel Apr 11 '13 at 17:18
  • oic. I've edited the question to make it clearer what first/second mean here. Then I had to change the word "sentence" to "version" in your text, so I could reverse my downvote, if that's okay by you. – FumbleFingers Apr 11 '13 at 18:27
  • Ok, no problem :-) – Trish Rempel Apr 11 '13 at 18:51
