    Smile sentence combination

    Dear teacher,

    How to combine the following two sentences into one?

    1. I just watched the movie on TV's HBO channel.

    2. The last scene of the movie is set in the urban district of Istanbul.

    I tried to do it as:

    (a) I just watched the movie whose last scene is set in the
    urban district of Istanbul on TV's HBO channel.

    or

    (b) I just watched the movie on TV's HBO channel whose last scene
    is set in the urban district of Istanbul.

    Which is acceptable, (a) or (b)?

    Re: sentence combination

    Hello Contiluo,
    Version A is correct whether written or spoken. Version B format is often heard in informal conversations and understood but suggests that the last scene of TV's HBO channel is located in the urban district of Istanbul.
