    Question please look at the question

    Hi,
    What happens to number 3 of the sentence below and makes it wrong?

    1-the author cites a basic principle of classical chimistry 2-and then decribes 3-the research from that the principle was developed.

    I think that number 3 doesn't agree on time set in both parts 1 and 2, we should also eliminate "was" or "is" for such a sentence. am I saying correctly?

    If I understood you correctly, that is to rectify the sentence structure, then please replace ‘that’ with ‘which’. You may or may not add ‘details’ .

    the author cites a basic principle of classical chemistry 2-and then describes 3-the research details from which (that) the principle was developed.
    Or
    the author cites a basic principle of classical chemistry and then describes the research details leading to its development.

    I think that number 3 doesn't agree on time set in both parts 1 and 2, we should also eliminate "was" or "is" for such a sentence. I don't agree.

    Am I correct.
    Is what I said correct?
