    "There is" placed at the end of a sentence.

    Hi Teacher,

    During my reading from a book I found the following sentence that I have never come across before.

    "Diaphragmatic breathing is the most efficient breathing there is."

    It would be greatly appreciated if you could explain to me whether it's correct/not and why. It seems to me that it's missing a word.

    Thanks & Regards,

    YlangYlang

    It seems to me that it's missing a word. It's not missing a word.
