    relative clause

    On the right side is the industrial area, where is on river side and near two roads.

    Q:The sentence above is not right (Copied from a book). It said we cannot put "where" in the sentence, and we cannot put "," in front of the word where. I don't quite understand. What's wrong in the sentence? Please rewrite it for me and tell me what might be the reasons. Thank you.

    1.Sorry, I rewrote the sentence.
    2.BobK, thanks for your reply.

    As I don't understand either the 'sentence' or the comments, I'm afraid I can't help much. Try copying the extract from the book, exactly as it appears there.
