    Lightbulb Correctness of a few sentences

    Dear teachers

    Could you point out which ones of these sentences are grammatically correct?

    • Coloured clothes included blue pants, red shirts and greenish trunks.
    • The coloured clothes found were blue pants, red shirts and yellowish trunks.
    • The coloured clothes found were: blue pants, red shirts and yellowish trunks.
    • Among the coloured clothes were found a pink shirt and 2 blue trousers.
    • The coloured clothes consisted of blue pants, grey shirts and brown trunks.

    Personaly, I like the last one better.

    Very much appreciated

    What is the wider context of your sentence?

    Clothes were sent to the 'laundry lady' and she mixed them with somebody else's laundry. The owner sent someone there to find or identify the clothes and help the laundry lady separate them.
