    It's not a sentence. The subject is missing.

    Note that ​is not an English punctuation mark.

    In my opinion, it should be "have better opportunities to work and study". Still, I am not a teacher of English.

    That's not a sentence either; the subject is still missing,.

    That could be a sentence if you capitalize the first letter and end it with a period/full stop. It will be a correct sentence if you change "in a big cities" to "in a big city" or "in big cities".

    Something's missing, not necessarily the subject.
    "Have better opportunities for working and studying ever existed before?"
