    A Grammar Mistake

    Dear Teacher,

    The following sentence is excerpted from a master of science thesis:

    "It seems that Ankara will be affected much more from an earthquake with similar magnitude may be occur in the future."

    http://www.deprem.gazi.edu.tr/upload/20071103144016.pdf (The last sentence under CONCLUSIONS on page 6)

    I think the correct wording should read;

    "It seems that Ankara will be affected much more from an earthquake with similar magnitude, which may occur in the future."

    I would appreciate if you could please tell me if I am wrong.

    Thanks and regards.
