    Re: Adjective clause (confusing me)

    "from between" is incorrect. Only one of the two is needed. I prefer "ranging from". "Ranging between" is acceptable but less common, in my opinion.

    Re: Adjective clause (confusing me)

    Thanks.But I have no problem on 'from' and 'between' ,however the context is written on " Mastering Skills From TOEFL IBT book"
    I still have a problem on Clause "with call numbers that is ranging" is right or " with call numbers that range " ?

    "Ranging" can replace "which/that range".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
