    Default omitted pronoun

    Hello guys

    Could you please tell me which one of the following is correct?

    a) "He is Brazilian, but he lives in England"
    b) "He is Brazilian, but lives in England"

    I have the impression that both are correct, but I need to be sure.

    Thanks.

    Default Re: omitted pronoun

    Both sound fine. I would, however, remove the comma.
