    which none of them --> none of which

    Original sentence:

    Each country has her own features which none of them should be discriminated.

    Edited:

    Each country has her own features none of which should be discriminated against.

    Are the corrections made right?

    THANKS

    Re: which none of them --> none of which

    Insert a comma after "features". Also, you might consider changing "her" to "its".
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....

    Are the corrections made right? Yes, it's OK, but I would prefer "Each country has its own features of which (OR about which) none should be discriminated.

    How do you discriminate against the features of a country?

    I fear it's a general 'do or think nasty things about' thought-crime!

    Re: which none of them --> none of which

    That may be the case, but for me the "features" of a country are things like mountains, lakes, forests etc. I'm of course against doing "nasty things" to any of those but I'm not sure what the danger is of me thinking bad things about them.
