    It was a field which was covered with mustard flowers,
    That's a complex sentence, It's also more natural than the original, in my opinion.

    Original sentence: "It was a flowering mustard field" [turn into complex sentence]

    Actually, to make complex sentence my friend did, "It was a mustard field which was flowreing. But, I did, It was a field which coverd with mustard flower." So, I'm still in confussion, which sentence is grammaritically correct? Can you tell you me, is my friend make it worng or, both of the sentence is correct? please give proper illustration. Thank you.

    I wouldn't say that "It was a mustard field which was flowering" is gramatically incorrect, but it is not a natural thing to say, in my opinion.
