    relative sentence

    Hello,
    I would like to ask you whether it is possible to change this sentence:
    ..travel card, for which you do not need a photograph..
    to this:
    ..travel card you do not need a photograph for.

    Thank you very much for your explanation!

    Don't be miserly with the context, Hany.

    Give us a full sentence, at least.

    Not thinking about the sense the sentences carry I'd say both are grammatically correct.

    Also

    ..travel card which you do not need a photograph for.

    But the first one is considered grammatically more correct than the others.
