    Relative clauses.

    1)My office is in New York.(The place where my office is New York.)
    2)I have been living in this country for 10 years.(This is the country where I have been living for 10 years.)


    I am studying on relative clauses.I tried to write above sentences by using relative pronouns between parantheses.Can you please tell me if they are correct?

    Re: Relative clauses.

    NOT A TEACHER

    There's just one mistake in your first sentence - you need to use another is, right after the one you already applied. Apart from that, your sentences are correct.

    Re: Relative clauses.

    There is no reason to use "is is". Better would be "My office is in New York".

    Re: Relative clauses.

    But the OP is trying to make a sentence using a relative pronoun with the same meaning as that.

    Re: Relative clauses.

    I understand, but I would always avoid "is is" if possible.
