    know

    Are these sentences correct:
    1-There are some passengers who we know have survived the crash or not but about the others we have no information.
    2-There are some of our employees we know drive to work or take the subway but about the the others we don't know that.

    Re: know

    Hi,

    Here are two possible answers.


    1

    There are some passengers who, we know, have survived the crash but about the others we have no information.

    2

    Some of our employees, we know, drive to work or take the subway but about the the others we don't know.


    Thanks

    Re: know

    My opinion:

    There are some passengers who we know have survived the crash or not but about the others we have no information.

    giving parallelism more attention:
    There are some passengers who (--) we know (--) have survived the crash or (have) not (survived the crash), but we do not know whether others have survived (or not).


    There are some passengers who, we know, have survived the crash but about the others we have no information.
    The two sentences above are different in meaning. The original sentence says there are some people whose course of life after the the accident we know about. About other than those 'some' people, we do not know anything.

    The pink version says there are some people who survived and we know that. We have no info about others than those 'some' people.

    ....

    There are some of our employees who (--) we know (--) drive to work or take the subway, but about the the others we don't know that about how others commute to work we do not know anything.
