I got a auto-spell fix hint in Microsoft word saying that

You hope you can live in a world which could exactly match your own value.

should be

You hope you can live in a world, which could exactly match your own value.

or

You hope you can live in a world that could exactly match your own value.

Do I have to change this? Is there any materials to read for reference?

  • It seems we should add a , after which and can omit it after that? Jan 13 '16 at 12:57
  • I guess it's flagging that after which is an adjectival clause. The reason for the switch between which -> that is a world is singular and specific, if you changes the original sentence to live in worlds, it may only suggest which. Just a guess...

  • Why would anyone want to live in a world that could match your own value (whatever that means). I would hope to live in a world that can match my value(s?). "You hope you can live in a world which can exactly match your own value"?

No, you don't have to change this. However, I would phrase it like this:

"You hope to live in a world exactly matching your own values."

We can all hope for that, but I wonder if it is ever actually possible.
