    Smile WHICH IS CORRECT?

    Hello,

    I'm a student and was asked about these two sentences. Which is correct? 'The costumer has the right to request a refund.' or 'The costumer has the right requesting a refund.' Thank you.

    Smile Re: WHICH IS CORRECT?

    I knew for sure that the first sentence is correct but can you help me rationalize the reason why the 2nd sentence is wrong? Thanks.

    Re: WHICH IS CORRECT?

    I take 'the right requesting a refund' to mean 'the right which is requesting a refund', which doesn't make sense.

    Neither one is right.

    If you mean someone who makes costumes, the word is 'costumier'. Otherwise it should be 'customer'.
