    Hi all,
    Is the expression of "of them" in the following sentence grammatically correct?
    "She adopted three children, of them two are orphan."

    Thanks a lot

    "Of them" can be used, but the word order is incorrect.

    She adopted three children. Two of them are orphans.
    She adopted three children - two of them are orphans.

    OR

    She adopted three children, of whom two are orphans.
