    set

    Hi,

    When we are speaking about cities/countries, can we use the verb "set" and say "This is an enormous country that is set in the east of Asia."?

    No, you would use "located".

    Re: set

    Or nothing at all "... an enormous country [which is] in the east of Asia" or "... in east Asia".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
