I'm just a little bit confused about this sentence. Can you tell me which one is grammatically correct? Or if neither of them is correct, could you suggest how to re-write the sentence, keeping the original idea?
- The building is for the highest-positioned-people only.
There are two things wrong with this sentence. The adjective "highest" cannot modify the adjective "positioned", and you cannot put a hyphen between the compound adjective and the noun "people" that it is modifying.
- The building is for the highest-position people only. after you put a hyphen between "highest" and "position" to from the compound adjective.
Thanks in advance.
