    Default 【from which】 + 【within/in】


    1 There has been a nation-wide shortage of building materials, from which the trade is only just recovering.
    I think the above sentence is wrong and it should be the following:
    The trade is only just recovering, from which there has been a nation-wide shortage of building materials.



    2 We are very much regret that we fail to complete the work within(in ) the agreed contract time.
    I think 【within】 is right, but 【in】 is right too.Why 【in】 is wrong?


    Thanks a lot in advance!

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with that sentence.

    That is not a good sentence.

    Say:
    We very much regret that we failed to complete the work on time.

    Don't thank me in advance. Instead, thank me later.
